How Long Does It Take To Get an SSL Certificate? – Before We Get Into The Topic, let’s Learn Some Basic Of This Topic
How long does it take to issue an SSL certificate?
The time it takes to issue a new SSL certificate is determined by some factors. The SSL certificate type, the validation process, and how quickly you respond to our or the certificate authority’s requests for information.
Certificates of conformity
After you approve the SSL certificate, it can take anywhere from one hour to several hours for standard single-name and wildcard certificates.
The issuance may take longer than expected, possibly several days. When an error occurs during the issuance or validation of a document, this is the case. The following are common issues:
- misconfiguration of the domain
- CAA records preventing the validation and issuance
- problems with email approval
- Remember to approve the certificate!
In most cases, the purchase process can get stuck because the certificate is never approved by the owner. After you’ve submitted the certificate, keep an eye on your approval email inbox, and make sure to click the link in the Certificate Authority’s email to validate and approve the certificate. Be sure to monitor your spam folder in case these emails are accidentally marked as spam.
Sectigo Wildcard Certificates and CAA
Customers who purchase a Sectigo wildcard certificate from us need to make sure they have both issuewild and issue CAA records because they add a single name to the certificate to cover the non-wildcard name.
How long does it take to get an SSL certificate?
It could take seconds or up to five business days, depending on what you choose.
