From August 19th 2020, SECTIGO issues SSL certificates with a maximum lifetime of 398 days (13 months) as specified by CA/Browser consortium. SSL certificates with a longer lifetime must be re-issued annually (free of charge). You'll receive reminders via e-mail. SSL certificates issued before August 19th 2020 remain valid until their planned expiry date. Code Signing & S/MIME certificates are not affected and remain valid until their planned expiry date.

What do i need SSL for?

Sending sensitive data over the internet is not a good idea. As the internet is open, anyone between the server and the browser can see all traffic. - This is why it's a very good idea to use encryption technology like SSL to make sure no third parties are collecting the data (e.g. credit card numbers, login and passwords, etc. ...)
