I've got a geotrust ssl certificate and the 1st year is up. Theyre telling me I need to renew it, so I click the link and i pretty much have to buy a whole new one, generate the CSR, install the thing.
do all companies make you install a new one every time you need to renew?
I have three Security certs. One I purchased from thawte for my unix server using apache. Because of this factor, when I went to renew I had the option of buying a new one or renewing the old. It was easy...and expensive.
My other two certs are from geotrust. THey haven't come up for renewal yet so I have no idea if they will allow me the option of renewal or will force me to generate new key or not. Might depend on the company. Might depend on the kind of server. DId you check through their FAQ or do a search for renewal SSL certs on their website? Might be an answer in there somewhere?
