Filtering by: duplicate certificates x clear
enhancement

We improved our Basic and Secure Site single domain certificate offerings (Standard SSL, EV SSL, Secure Site SSL, and Secure Site EV SSL), adding the Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate option to these certificates' order, reissue, and duplicate forms. This option allows you to choose whether to include both versions of the common name (FQDN) in these single domain certificates for free.

  • To secure both versions of the common name (FQDN), check Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate.
  • To secure only the common name (FQDN), uncheck Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate.

See Order your SSL/TLS certificates.

Works for subdomains too

The new option allows you to get both versions of base and subdomains. Now, to secure both versions of a subdomain, add the subdomain to the Common Name box (sub.domain.com) and check Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate. When DigiCert issues your certificate, it will include both versions of the subdomain on the certificate: [sub.domain].com and www.[sub.doman].com.

Removed Use Plus Feature for Subdomains

The Include both [your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com in the certificate option makes the Plus Feature -- Use Plus Feature for Subdomains obsolete. So, we removed the option from the Division Preferences page (in the sidebar menu, click Settings > Preferences).

enhancement

In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the Order OV/EV SSL, Order SSL (type_hint), Order Secure Site SSL, Order Private SSL, Reissue certificate, and Duplicate certificate endpoints listed below. These changes provide more control when requesting, reissuing, and duplicating your single domain certificates, allowing you choose whether to include a specific additional SAN on these single domain certificates for free.

  • /ssl_plus
  • /ssl_ev_plus
  • /ssl_securesite
  • /ssl_ev_securesite
  • /private_ssl_plus
  • /ssl*
  • /reissue
  • /duplicate

*Note: For the Order SSL (type_hint) endpoint, only use the dns_names[] parameter as described below to add the free SAN.

To secure both versions of your domain ([your-domain].com and www. [your-domain].com), in your request, use the common_name parameter to add the domain ([your-domain].com) and the dns_names[] parameter to add the other version of the domain (www. [your-domain].com).

When DigiCert issues your certificate, it will secure both versions of your domain.

example SSL certificte request

To secure only the common name (FQDN), omit the dns_names[] parameter from your request.

enhancement

In the DigiCert Services API, we improved the Duplicate certificate endpoint workflow. Now, if the duplicate certificate can be immediately issued, we return the duplicate certificate in the response body.

For more information, see Duplicate certificate.

enhancement

We improved the duplicate certificate order process in CertCentral. Now, if the duplicate certificate can be immediately issued, we take you directly to the Duplicates page where you can immediately download the certificate.

fix

We fixed a pending certificate reissue bug where we listed domains dropped from the original or previously issued certificate in the You Need To section on the pending reissue's Order # details page.

This issue only affected domains with expired domain validation. If you removed a domain with up-to-date domain validation, we didn't include it in the You Need To section.

Note: You were only required to complete the DCV for the domains you included in your reissue request. You could ignore the domains you had removed. Additionally, when we reissued your certificate, we didn't include the domains dropped from the original or previously issued certificate in the reissue.

Now, when you reissue a certificate and remove domains included in the original or previously issued certificate, we only show the domains included in the reissue request with pending domain validation in the You Need To section on the pending reissue's Order # details page.

fix

We fixed a duplicate certificate orders bug where we added the original certificate requestor as the requestor on all duplicate certificate orders, regardless of who requested the duplicate.

Now, on duplicate certificate orders, we add the name of the user who requested the duplicate.

Note: This fix is not retroactive and doesn't affect issued duplicate certificate orders.

fix

In the DigiCert Services API, we fixed a bug in the List duplicates endpoint where we weren’t returning the name of the requestor on duplicate certificate orders.

Now, when you use the List duplicates endpoint, we return the name of the user requesting the duplicate certificate.

To fix this issue, we added some new response parameters enabling us to return the name of the requestor in the response:

…user_id= Requestor's user ID
…firstname= Requestor's first name
…lastname= Requestor's last name
