How to revoke SSL?

An SSL certificate revocation is the process of invalidating or cancelling an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate before its natural expiration date. (The process cannot be reversed.)

When to Revoke an SSL Certificate:
  1. If you believe you have acquired the incorrect SSL certificate that doesn't align with your specific requirements, you can initiate the revocation process within 15 days of purchase to receive a full refund
  2. A certificate should be revoked immediately when its private key shows signs of being compromised.
  3. If an organization changes its name, legal structure, or ownership, the SSL certificate may need to be revoked and reissued to reflect the new information accurately.
  1. Login to your Reseller Panel

  2. Navigate to the left-hand side of the page and locate the SSL Certificate Menu.

  3. Click on the SSL ID for the Active SSL order you wish to Revoke.

  4. Navigate and Click on Revoke Certificate (Note - SSL purchased within 15 days are only eligible for the Refund).

  5. Once you have Revoked the certificate a refund will be credited in to your account instantly.

(If you revoke your certificate after the first 15 days, no refund will be credited in to your account.)
