New feature: Document Signing certificate renewals

We fixed a bug on the Expiring Certificates page where we provided a Renew Now link for expiring Document Signing (DS) certificate orders. When you clicked Renew Now, it opened an SSL certificate renewal form where you were unable to complete your DS certificate renewal.

Note: To renew your DS certificate, you were required to order a new certificate.

Now, on the Expiring Certificate page when you click Renew Now for an expiring DS certificate order, it opens a DS certificate renewal form where you are able renew your certificate.

To learn more about renewing a DS certificate, see Renew a document signing certificate.

We updated the Document Signing (DS) certificate's Order details page and Order details panel adding a new Renew Certificate option making it easier to renew your DS certificate before it expires. Note that the Renew Certificate option doesn't appear on the Order details panel and page until 90 days before it expires.

Order details panel

In the left main menu, click Certificates > Orders. On the Orders page, click the DS certificate order's Quick View link. In the Order details panel, you'll see the new Renew Certificate option.

Order details page

In the left main menu, click Certificates > Orders. On the Orders page, click the DS certificate's order number link. On the Order details page, in the Order Actions dropdown, you'll see the new Renew Certificate option.

We enhanced our RapidSSL DV certificate offerings enabling you to include a second, very specific domain, in these single domain certificates.

  • RapidSSL Standard DV
    By default now, when ordering a RapidSSL Standard DV Certificate, you get both versions of the common name in the certificate – [your-domain].com and www.[your-domain].com.
    After entering the common name, make sure the Include both www.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com in the certificate box is checked.
    Previously, you had to order separate certificates for [your-domain].com and www.[your-domain].com.
  • RapidSSL Wildcard DV
    By default now, when ordering a RapidSSL Wildcard DV Certificate, you get the wildcard domain and the base domain in the certificate – *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com.
    After entering the common name, make sure the Include both *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com in the certificate box is checked.
    Previously, you had to order separate certificates for *.[your-domain].com and [your-domain].com.
