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.
Updates to the Domain details page
We simplified the Domain Validation section on the Domain details page to display only two validation types with their expiration dates: OV and EV. We also updated the page to show the domain validation expiration dates calculated from when the Domain Control Verification (DCV) was completed (OV: +825 days, EV: +13 months).
Note: Previously, you could see up to two other validation types: Grid and Private. Grid certificates have the same validity period as OV: 825 days. Domain validation is not required for private certificates as these certificates are not publicly trusted.
To view a domain's validation expiration dates, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains. On the Domains page, locate the domain and click its Domain Name link. On the Domain details page, under Domain Validation, view your domain validations and when they expire.
CertCentral Services API: Improved List domains and Domain info endpoints
In the DigiCert Services API, we updated the List domains and Domain info endpoints, enabling you to see when the domain control validations (DCV) for the domain expire: OV and EV validations. This new information is only returned in the response if you include the URL query string
Now, when you get a list of all domains or information about a specific domain and you include the URL query string
include_validation=true, you can see when the DCVs for the domain expire.
Example requests with the URL query string:

Removed "Pending" column from Domains page
We found a bug on the Domains page preventing us from providing accurate information about a domain's pending validations. As a temporary solution, we are removing the Pending column from the page until a permanent fix can be deployed.
To view if a domain has pending validations, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains. On the Domains page, locate the domain and click its Domain Name link. On the Domain details page, under Domain Validation, check to see if the domain has pending validations: OV and EV.
