Customize the lifetime of your DigiCert Multi-year Plan
We are happy to announce you can now configure a custom lifetime for your Multi-year Plan (MyP) when requesting a TLS certificate in CertCentral. On the TLS certificate request forms, use the new Custom order validity option to customize the length of your TLS certificate order.
Note: Maximum TLS certificate validity is 397 days per industry best practices. See End of 2-Year public SSL/TLS certificates.
Custom Multi-year Plan order lengths can be set in days or by expiration date. Maximum order length is 2190 days (6 years). Minimum order length is 7 days.
Note: Custom orders start on the day we issue the certificate for the order. Order pricing is prorated to match the certificate selected and your custom order length.
To customize your MyP coverage
Updated product settings for public TLS certificates
To provide more control over your certificate order process, we updated the product settings for public TLS certificates. Now, you can determine the allowed Multi-year Plan order lengths users can select from when ordering a public TLS certificate.
On the TLS certificate's product settings page, use the Allowed validity periods option to determine what MyP order lengths appear on a TLS certificate request form: 1 Year, 2 Years, 3 Years, 4 Years, 5 Years, and 6 Years. Note that changes made to product settings apply to requests placed through CertCentral and the Services API.
Note: Previously, the Allowed validity periods option was used to determine the maximum certificate lifetime a user could select when ordering a public TLS certificate. However, with the industry move to 1-year certificate this option is no longer needed for certificate lengths. See End of 2-Year public SSL/TLS certificates.
To configure the allowed MyP order lengths for a TLS certificate
The next time a user orders a Secure Site OV certificate, they will only see the validity period lengths you selected on the request form.
Note: Setting limits on Multi-year Plan order lengths removes the custom validity option from your TLS certificate request forms.
CertCentral Domains page: Improved domains.csv report
On the Domains page, we improved the CSV report to make it easier to track OV and EV domain validation expiration dates and to view the previously used domain control validation (DCV) method.
The next time you download the CSV file, you will see we three new columns in the report:

When you open the domains.csv, you should see the new columns and information in your report.
CertCentral: Automatic DCV checks – DCV polling
We are happy to announce we've improved the domain control validation (DCV) process and added automatic checks for DNS TXT, DNS CNAME, and HTTP practical demonstration (FileAuth) DCV methods.
This means, once you've placed the fileauth.txt file on your domain or added the random value to your DNS TXT or DNS CNAME records, you don't need to worry about signing in to CertCentral to run the check yourself. We will run the DCV check automatically. Although, you can still run a manual check, when needed.
DCV polling cadence
After submitting your public SSL/TLS certificate order, submitting a domain for prevalidation, or changing the DCV method for a domain, DCV polling begins immediately and runs for one week.
*After Interval 5, we stop checking. If you have not placed the fileauth.txt file on your domain or added the random value to your DNS TXT or DNS CNAME records by the end of the first week, you will need to run the check yourself.

我们已将 CertCentral DV 证书注册指南移动到了 https://docs.digicert.com/certcentral/documentation/dv-certificate-enrollment/。
该指南的 PDF 版本仍然可用（请参阅引言页面底部的链接）。
此外，我们更新并添加了说明以介绍在 CertCentral 中支持的 DV 证书的 DCV 方法。
我们改进了 DV 证书的证书编号详细信息页面的证书详细信息部分，添加了额外的 DV 证书信息：序列号和拇指指纹。
注意：该改进功能不可追溯。该新信息仅对在 2019 年 1 月 15 日 UTC 时间 17:00 之后下达的订单显示。

我们改进了域管理 - 获取域控制电子邮件 API 端点的功能。您现在可以使用域名检索任何域的域控制验证 (DCV) 电子邮件地址（基于 WHOIS 的电子邮件和构造的电子邮件）。
以前，您必须具有域 ID 才能检索 DCV 电子邮件地址。但是，要为域获得 ID，必须提交域进行预验证。
现在，您可以使用域名或域 ID，通过域管理 - 获取域控制电子邮件端点检索域的 DCV 电子邮件地址（基于 WHOIS 的电子邮件和构造的电子邮件）。请参阅获取域电子邮件端点。
