Sectigo

This guide applies to Sectigo's SSL certificates ordered through Also Martketplace.

 

General information about certificates


Certificates are made up of 4 parts:

  • Private Key
  • CSR-file
  • Certificate
  • CA certificates

Certificates are temporary and they are ordered for a 1-2 year period. A new certificate has to be ordered for each new period, as certificates can not be renewed.

 

CSR-file and Private Key

You should create the CSR-file on the same server you are going to install the certificate in. A private key is generated while creating the CSR-file.

Certificate validation

Before a certificate can be approved, you need to verify the ownership of your domain. Sectigo Essential SSL and Sectigo Essential Wildcard SSL certificates have a one level domain level validation.The most common way to verify the ownership of a domain is to have Sectigo send a verification message to one of the email addresses below:

• admin@
• administrator@
• hostmaster@
• postmaster@
• webmaster@


If none of the addresses above exist or can not be created, you can create one of them as an email alias to an existing address. Another way to verify ownership is to create a CNAME type DNS record based on the CSR-file. After the ownership is verified, the certificate will be approved and sent.


Sectigo EV SSL-certificates have a two level validation process. On top of the domain level validation, the certifying body will verify the ownership by calling the number found on business registers.

 

Certificate delivery and installation

After the verification process, Sectigo will send the certificate to the verification email address. The installation process is differs from server to server. Sectigo's guide to installing certificates is below:

You can download the Sectigo Essential SSL bundle here:

CA Bundle is copied normally in to the CA part of the certificate.  SHA-256 CA Bundle is below:

Certificate expiration notifications will be sent from noreply_support@comodoca.com email address, and they are sent to the same address the verification email was sent to. We recommend you whitelist that address. The notification emails are sent int the following cycle:

  • 90 d
  • 30 d
  • 5 d
  • The same day the certificate expires

Sectigo Essential SSL

This is the basic certificate provided by Sectigo. It can be used to secure one address. You can secure both www and @-host. For example with one certificate you can secure www.example.com and example.com. You can create the CSR-file for example with www.example.com

  • Domain level validation
  • Support for scandinavian characters
  • Valid for 1-2 years

 

Sectigo Essential Wildcard SSL

This is Sectigo's wildcard-certificate, which can be used for securing x-amount of host names. For example store.example.com, intra.example.com and www.example.com. While creating the CSR-file, the CN-field will have *.example.com as the address.

  • Domain level validation
  • Support for scandinavian characters
  • Valid for 1-2 years

 

Sectigo EV SSL

With Sectigo's EV SSL-certificate, you can secure one host name. You can secure both www and @-host. For example with one certificate you can secure www.example.com and example.com. You can create the CSR-file for example with www.example.com. With this certificate, you also get a so colled green address bar to your domain.

  • "Green address bar"
  • Two level validation
  • Support for scandinavian letters
