SSL coverage for longer than one year, are you missing out on additional benefits?
Although SSL validity periods are capped at one year, Certificate Authorities introduced Multi-year Plans (MYP), allowing customers to purchase SSL coverage for up to six years. You can think of MYP’s like a bundle of one-year certificates running consecutively, one by one until the coverage paid for expires. Our customers with MYP’s benefit from:
- Flexible timeframes & quantity discounts – Receive a discount for every additional year purchased. More years equals higher savings.
- Streamlined processes – MYPs one-time payment removes the hassle of tracking due dates and managing annual billing.
- Improved security – Employ a TLS best practice of shorter certificate lifetimes and minimize the risk of compromised security by changing out weak keys regularly.
- Future-proof opportunity – Get protection from further reduction to certificate lifetimes imposed by the industry.
