Duplicate an SSL/TLS certificate

All DigiCert 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 create a duplicate certificate for each server.

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.

Create a duplicate certificate

To get a duplicate certificate, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Generate CSR

To duplicate an SSL/TLS certificate, you’ll need to generate a new CSR. For more information about creating a CSR, see our Create a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) page.

Step 2: Sign in to your account

Sign in to CertCentral.

Step 3: Fill out the Request Duplicate form

Fill out the Request Duplicate form and modify the certificate as needed.

In the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Orders. On the Orders page, click the Order # of the certificate that needs to be duplicated. On the certificate's Order # details page, in the Certificate Actions dropdown, click Request Duplicate.

Step 4: DigiCert issues the duplicate SSL/TLS certificate

Once approved, we issue the duplicate certificate and send it to the certificate contact in an email. You can also download the duplicate certificate from your account. See Download a certificate from your account.

Step 5: Install your duplicate SSL/TLS certificate

Install and configure the new certificate. For more information about installing your certificate, see our SSL Certificate Installation Instructions & Tutorials page.
