Email a TLS/SSL certificate from your CertCentral account

After DigiCert issues your TLS/SSL certificate, you can email the certificate to specified email addresses. You can also select the delivery format for the certificate: attachment, plaintext, or download link.

Email certificate

  1. In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Orders.

  2. On the Orders page, in the Order # column, click the Quick View link of the certificate you want to email.

  3. In the Order # details pane (on the right), click Send Certificate.

  4. In the Send Certificate window, complete the steps below:

    1. In the Send Certificate To box, enter the email addresses you want to send the certificate to (comma separated).

    2. Under Send Certificate As, select how you want to send the certificate:

      • Attachment – Send the certificate as an attachment to the email.

      • Plain Text – Send the certificate as plain text in the body of the email.

      • Download Link – Include a link to a download page in the body of the email.
