On March 1st, 2015, The SSL Store™ will discontinue offering SSL certificates with validity periods of 4 and 5 years. This is in accordance with new guidelines set forth by the Certificate Authority/Browser (CA/B) Forum, the governing body of the SSL industry. This update will affect all SSL certificates in the industry, including the entire product catalogs of Symantec, Comodo, Thawte, GeoTrust, and RapidSSL. (EV certificates are already limited to a maximum of two years so they are not affected by this change).
Please note that any active 4 or 5 year certificate that are reissued after the March 1st, 2015 deadline will automatically be truncated to the new maximum duration permissible, which is 39 months. Any active 4 or 5 year certificate that is reissued before this deadline will be unaffected. RedOrum LLC strongly recommends that any new SSL purchase be for no more than a maximum of 3 years, in order to avoid any lost time and money due to a reissue and we can help you with renewals and purchases.
