When your SSL certificate isn’t set to auto renew, you have a 90 day window to purchase a renewal credit and apply it to the certificate – from 60 days before to 30 days after the expiration date.
If you’re using a Standard (DV) certificate with a domain that you own inside of your LuckyRegister – Cheap Domain Registration, Domain Hosting Services account, and you’ve set the certificate to auto-renew, no further action is needed on your part. Renewing your SSL certificate is completely automated. Otherwise, please read on.
- Log in to your LuckyRegister – Cheap Domain Registration, Domain Hosting Services account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
- Do one of the following:
- If the billing for your renewal is already completed, skip to the next step.
- Click Renew to purchase a renewal credit and then click Checkout. Complete the transaction for your renewal, and then return to your list of common names.
- Select the option which you want to use for requesting your renewed certificate, and then click Request Certificate. Any additional steps we require display on this page.
- Once your certificate is issued, you’ll receive an email letting you know that it’s available for use.
Warning: If you haven’t completed the renewal by the expiration date, your website displays an error message, and won’t be accessible to your visitors.
After you receive the email stating your SSL is issued, install it on your website:
- If you selected a domain hosted with us when you requested your renewal, we automatically install your certificate.
- If you provided a CSR (certificate signing request), you must download and install both certificate files.
