Domain validation improvements

We improved the current domain validation process to help make sure the domains in your account remain in good standing and there is no disruption to your certificate services.

  • Domain expiry notification – When a domain expires in 60 days, we send domain control validation (DCV) emails to the domain owners. With the February 28 release, we’ll also send an alert to admins at the same time. Admins can then follow up with domain owners as needed.
  • DCV email resending – You can resend the DCV emails for pending domains through the console. With the February 28 release, you can also resend DCV emails for domains expiring within 60 days and expired domains.
