Duplicate an SSL/TLS certificate

DigiCert OV and EV TLS/SSL certificates come with unlimited free duplicate issues. To increase security and make it easier to install the certificate on multiple servers, generate a new CSR and request a duplicate certificate for each server.


Duplicate certificates require domain and organization validation to be done before you request the certificate. Note that the duplicate certificate process does not include a workflow for validating domains and organizations.

The details in the duplicate certificate will be exactly the same as in the original certificate. Duplicate certificates never require DigiCert to revoke previous copies of your certificate.
