Replacing or Reassigning a Certificate

An SSL certificate can be reassigned to another domain. This is called Replacing a certificate, and it involves setting up the certificate again, including choosing the domain, CSR, and DCV.

Replacing a certificate will not change the expiration date of the certificate. The expiration date will always be based on the date the certificate was originally issued.
