Multi-year Plans now available
We are happy to announce that Multi-year Plans are now available in CertCentral and CertCentral Partners.
DigiCert® Multi-year Plans allow you to pay a single discounted price for up to six years of SSL/TLS certificate coverage. With Multi-year Plans, you pick the SSL/TLS certificate, the duration of coverage you want (up to six years), and the certificate validity. Until the plan expires, you reissue your certificate at no cost each time it reaches the end of its validity period.
The maximum validity of an SSL/TLS certificate will go from 825 days to 397 days on September 1, 2020. When the active certificate for a Multi-year Plan is about to expire, you reissue the certificate to maintain your SSL/TLS coverage.
Browser support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1 has ended
The four major browsers no longer support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1.
What you need to know
This change doesn't affect your DigiCert certificates. Your certificates continue to work as they always have.
This change affects browser-dependent services and applications relying on TLS 1.0 or 1.1. Now that browser support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1 has ended, any out-of-date systems will be unable to make HTTPS connections.
What you need to do
If you are affected by this change and your system supports more recent versions of the TLS protocol, upgrade your server configuration as soon as you can to TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.3.
If you do not upgrade to TLS 1.2 or 1.3, your webserver, system, or agent will not be able to use HTTPS to securely communicate with the certificate.

CertCentral Services API: Updated error message documentation
In the Services API documentation, we've updated the Errors page to include descriptions for error messages related to:
Earlier this year, we improved the APIs for DV certificate orders and DCV requests to provide more detailed error messages when DCV, file authorization, DNS lookups, or CAA resource record checks fail. Now, when you receive one of these error messages, check the Errors page for additional troubleshooting information.
