Improved Domains page: DCV expiration dates and more
We improved the Domains page enabling you to see when the domain control validations (DCVs) for your domains expire—OV and EV validations.
Note: Previously, to find out when a domain's validation was going to expire, you had to go to the domain's details page.
Now when you go to the Domains page (in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains), you'll see these new additions:
*Note: These filters show domain validations that expire in the next 30 days.
Improved Domain details page: DCV expiration dates and more
We improved the Domain details page, enabling you to see when the domain control validations (DCVs) for your domain expires—OV and EV validations.
Now when you go to a domain's details page, under Domain Validation, you'll see a new subsection, Validation Status, that lets you see when the domain's OV and EV certificate domain validations will expire*. We also added a warning icon to make it easier to identify when a validation has expired.
*Note: These expiration dates are calculated from when the Domain Control Verification (DCV) was completed (OV: +825 days, EV: +13 months).
New feature: Submit domains for revalidation at any time
On the Domain details page, we added a new feature, enabling you to submit a domain for revalidation before the domain control validation (DCV) for it expires. Now, you can submit a domain for revalidation at any time, enabling you to complete the domain’s validation early to maintain seamless certificate issuance for the domain.
When you go to a domain's details page, under Domain Validation, you'll see a new subsection, Submit for validation. Before a domain's validation expires, you can resubmit it for validation and select the DCV method you want to use to demonstrate control over your domain. See Domain prevalidation: Revalidate your domain before validation expires.
For a domain with current validation, you still see a green check mark indicating the validation for the domain is still valid and can be used when ordering certificates for it. However, you will also see a message letting you know the domain is pending revalidation. When you've completed the DCV, the expiration date changes, and the pending revalidation message disappears.
CertCentral: Domain validation management for all account types
We are happy to announce all CertCentral accounts now come with domain validation management by default. Now, all account types have access to these domain management features:
To use the new domain validation management features, go to the Domains page (in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains).
*For more information about submitting domains for prevalidation, see Domain prevalidation.
Note: Previously, only Enterprise and Partner accounts had the ability to submit domains for prevalidation and manage their domains' validations (domain control validation).
CertCentral: Domain Validation Scope settings apply to TLS orders only
On the Division Preferences page, under Domain Control Validation (DCV), we updated the Domain Validation Scope settings: Submit exact domain for validation and Submit base domains for validation. These updated settings allow you to define the default domain validation behavior when submitting new domains through the TLS certificate order process: EV, OV, and DV. These settings no longer apply to the domain prevalidation process.*
*How do these changes affect the domain prevalidation process?
When submitting domains for prevalidation, you can validate a domain at any level, base or any of the lower level subdomains: example.com, sub1.example.com, sub2.sub1.example.com, etc. See Domain prevalidation.
"Resend create certificate email" option for browser generated Code Signing certificate orders
We added a Resend create certificate email option to our Code Signing certificate process for orders where the certificate is generated in a supported browser: IE 11, Safari, Firefox 68, and portable Firefox.
Now, when a code signing certificate order has the status Emailed to Recipient, you can resend the certificate generation email.
For more information, see Resend "Create Your DigiCert Code Signing Certificate" email.
We fixed a bug preventing the Cancel Order option from appearing for Code Signing (CS) certificate orders with a status of Emailed to Recipient. On the Order details, page the Cancel Order option was missing from the Certificate Actions dropdown.
Note: To cancel the order, you had to contact our support team.
Now, to cancel a Code Signing (CS) certificate order with the status Emailed to Recipient, go to Order details page for the certificate and cancel the order.
For more information, Cancel a certificate order.
CertCentral: Edit organization details
We added a new feature to the organization management process in CertCentral—Edit organization details. Now, to update organization information, go to the Organization details page for that organization and click Edit Organization.
What you need to do before you edit an organization's details
Changing organization details for a validated organization negates all existing validation for the organization. This cannot be undone. This means DigiCert will need to validate the "updated/new" organization before we can issue certificates for it. Before you begin, make sure you understand and accept what happens when you change an organization's details.
For more information, see Edit organization details.
