Order DV TLS/SSL certificates

The certificate lifecycle begins when you log into your account and request a DV certificate for a domain. You can only request certificates authorized for your account (in other words, for your company/organization).

Industry standards change: End of 2-year public SSL/TLS certificates

On August 27, 2020, 6:00 PM MDT (August 28 00:00 UTC), DigiCert stopped issuing public DV, OV, and EV SSL/TLS certificates with a maximum validity greater than 397 days. For more information about this change, see End of 2-year DV, OV, and EV public SSL/TLS certificates.

To maximize your SSL/TLS coverage, purchase new certificates with a DigiCert® Multi-year Plan. For more information about these plans, see Multi-year Plans.
