SSL SSL Certificaten

It is important to regularly renew your SSL certificate to maintain the security and reliability of your website. As of Sept. 1, 2020, there is an industry policy in place that allows SSL certificates a maximum validity period of 398 days (about 13 months). This means you should renew your SSL certificate at least once a year.

Since Sept. 1, 2020, it has been decided that certificates can have a maximum duration of 398 days (13 months). So you will renew your certificate annually. This was decided with certain security rules

The renewal process may differ depending on your certificate authority and hosting provider. It's wise to contact your certificate authority or hosting company well before the expiration date for specific instructions on your SSL certificate renewal process.

At Kinamo, we do our best to make the renewal process as smooth as possible for our customers. If the domain name is registered with us, we usually take care of the SSL certificate renewal automatically. If the customer purchased the certificate elsewhere and the domain name is registered elsewhere, we send them an email notification when the renewal is approaching so they can take action in time.

By renewing on time, you ensure your website remains secure and enjoy the benefits of SSL security.
