SSL certificate requirement updates

There are some upcoming changes to the Digicert, Geotrust, Thawte, and RapidSSL SSL certificates we offer on October 13, 2020. We’ve done our best to accommodate them in a way that minimizes the impact on your business. Wherever possible, we’ve made our API adjustments backward compatible.

If you submit more contact details than necessary, we will process and retain a record of the contact details required for the registration.

Note: For OV and EV certificates, the organization contact details are expanded to include first name, last name, and email. If any of these elements are missing, they will be copied over from the admin contact.
