Since 1 March 2018, the maximum validity period of SSL certificates has been reduced from 39 to a little more than 27 months. What exactly does this mean for you?
Under the pressure of various organisations (especially Google and Mozilla), the decision was taken to shorten this maximum validity period. This should help make the web more secure and develop sounder management in the sector.
Why do you need an SSL certificate?
An increasing number of websites are using the HTTPS protocol instead of the traditional HTTP protocol. This makes it possible to secure the communication with the user’s browser, and provides guarantees as to the identity of the owner of the domain name.
