Regenerate your Certificate

When you regenerate your certificate you reprocess the initial file, which will let you use a new public and private key.

This is also the process you will use to change the domains listed on a multidomain SSL.

To regenerate your SSL Certificate, follow these steps:

  1. After logging into your account, select “SSL Certificates” from the left navigation menu.
  2. Click “Regenerate.”
  3. Select “Automatic” or “Custom installation.” See below for more explanation of the options.
  4. Click “Regenerate.”
  5. Complete the appropriate steps to validate your domain name.


A regeneration request will launch the same domain validation process that you performed when you first created the certificate.

Regeneration Options

  • Automatic”:This will automatically generate and install the certificate for a site hosted on a Simple Hosting instance (size S+ or larger). You will not be able to download the certificate and use it elsewhere.
  • Custom installation”: You will be asked to provide a CSR that you have generated.
