What is an SSL reissue and when will I need to request it?

Just as the name sounds, SSL Reissue is to reissue a new certificate for the already configured SSL so as to replace the previously issued certificate. Reissuing a new certificate does not change the expiration of the certificate and the new certificate is still valid till the actual expiration date of the original certificate.

Instances when you can reissue SSL certificate:

- When you change your web server/hosting provider 
- When is the private key for the certificate is lost or compromised.
- when you change your  contact information and you need it updated on your certificate
