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 about third party signed SSL certificates? - Trusted 3rd party trusted certificate authority (CA)? (e.g. for Base CRM, Zimbra, etc.)

Yes, all of the SSL certificates we are offering are trusted ones.  Both authorities COMODO and GEOTRUST have been in business for many many years, and their respective brands RapidSSL and PositiveSSL are accepted by literally every client (99.9 coverage!).

The exact type of SSL certificate is mainly depending on the technical requirements of your infratructure. In case you are uncertain, please don't hesitate - contact us and ask!

Please note that the installation for the SSL requires some technical expertise, therefor we highly recommend having the server administrator or website developer do the installation.
