From the 1st March 2018 organisations will no longer be able to order 3-year SSL/TLS DigiCert certificates.
Organisation or Business Validation (OV) and Domain Validation (DV) certificate reissues and duplicate issues after 28th February 2018 can only have a maximum validity of 825 days (approximately 27 months) even if there is more time remaining on the certificate (e.g., 1064 days).
For all current 3-year OV or DV certificates, DigiCert recommend that you make plans to move to 2-year OV and DV certificates immediately. Shortened certificate life-cycles mean certificate renewals will come around one year sooner, which may affect budgets and how you manage your certificates.
DigiCert Certificates affected by this change:
• Standard SSL
• Multi-Domain SSL
• Wildcard SSL
