As of March 1, 2018, Certification Authorities will cease issuing 3-year SSL certificates for OV and DV validation. Re-issue after February 28, 2018 will be valid for no longer than 27 months, regardless of the original period. If you use certificates issued for 10 years and re-issue them, the CA will be forced to shorten their validity period.
The original three-year OV and DV certificate, issued before March 1, 2018, retains its 39-month validity. Only reissue and duplicate issues will be subject to the reduced maximum validity of the certificate.
