Thawte 123 SSL certificate

Domain (DV) SSL certificate from the pioneer of SSL certificates - CA THAWTE. The name Thawte one-two-three simply means "order, confirm and deploy". It is fully trusted by 99.9% of modern browsers. As a DV SSL/TLS certificate it contains only domain information with no other data, making it suitable for projects where secure HTTPS communication is the primary goal. An alternative to the Thawte 123 certificate is the Thawte SSL certificate, which is designed for corporate customers as a OV (Organization Validation) certificate.

What you should know before you place an order.

Domain Validated SSL certificate

All you need to do is provide proof of ownership/administration over the registered domain

The applicant for the SSL certificate is verified by sending an e-mail message to the selected e-mail. According to the rules there are fixed addresses to choose from admin@, administrator@, webmaster@, hostmaster@ or postmaster@. We recommend creating one of the addresses, or having it set as an alias, ev. use the domain basket and retrieve the confirmation e-mail from it.
Instead of e-mail confirmation, alternative validation offers inserting a TXT record into a DNS domain zone or a text file into the data space on the server (FTP). We support both alternative verification methods and are set in the order detail.

Note i: It is not possible to send a validation email to a personal address e.g.

Renewing your certificate

You can renew your Thawte 123 certificate with us without any problem even if you originally ordered it from another supplier. We always have better prices than the certification authority!

REISSUE certificate

Unlimited free reissues for orders at our store

During the validity of the certificate, you can re-generate the certificate at any time free of charge. This is called REISSUE and is useful in case you do not have a private key for migration to another server or the keys have been deleted and there is no backup. Reissue is possible with a new request that contains the same data as the initial order.

Note i: Best practices are to generate a new certificate signing request (CSR) when reissuing your SSL/TLS certificate. Generating a new CSR creates a new, unique key pair (public/private) for the reissued certificate.
Note ii: It is not possible to reissue SSL while it is processing or another reissue request pending.

Multi-Year Certificates

In order to provide you the lowest cost per year, we offer 2-5 year certificate packages

As of 1 September 2020, Apple, Google and Mozilla browsers and devices do not accept new SSL/TLS certificates that have a lifetime of more than 398 days. To comply with the latest security requirements, multi-year SSL certificates are issued for 1 year (max. 398 days). You'll need to re-issue the certificate once per year. We'll send you email notifications starting 30 days before expiration. Of course, REISSUE is free of charge. Plus you can reissue your certificate at any time and as many times as you like!

Google, the creator of the Chrome browser, plans to further shorten the validity period for security reasons and to ensure as much automation as possible when deploying SSL certificates. It is assumed that by 2025 at the latest, certificates will only be issued with a 3-month validity. Certification authorities are preparing for these changes. We recommend ordering multi-year certificates now with max. valid for 2 years.

After the certificate is issued, you cannot shorten the validity period, request a refund of the unused period or change the domain name! If you decide to get an SSL certificate for 3 years or more, we recommend that you first consider whether you will need it for the entire period.

Note i: Re-issue requires revalidation.
Note ii: You can insert new CSR or use last one during reissue.
