Revoke a certificate

Updated Dec 14th, 2020 at 20:43 GMT

Revoking your SSL certificate cancels it and immediately removes HTTPS from the website. Depending on your Web host, your website might display errors or become temporarily inaccessible. The process cannot be reversed.

Do you actually need to revoke your certificate?

We recommend considering revocation only if the secured site is no longer operational or you requested the certificate for the wrong organization.

For example, do not revoke the certificate if you are switching certificate types, such as from a Standard to an Organization Validation SSL. You can simply install the new certificate over the existing one.

In the following circumstances, you can also re-key your certificate instead of revoking it:

  • Changing the certificate's common name

  • Lost your private key

  • Moving your website to a new server

For information about re-keying your certificate instead of revoking it, see how to re-key your certificate
