Revoke a Certificate

Revoking your SSL certificate cancels it and immediately removes HTTPS from the website. Depending on your Web host, your website might display errors or become temporarily inaccessible. The process cannot be reversed.

Do you actually want to revoke your certificate?

We recommend considering revocation only if the secured Website is no longer operational or you requested the certificate for the wrong organization.

For example, do not revoke

In the following circumstances, you can also re-key your certificate instead of revoking it:

  • Changing the certificate's common name
  • Lost your private key
  • Moving your website to a new server

For information about re-keying your certificate instead of revoking it, see Rekey certificate.

  3. Click Revoke.
  4. Select the reason why you're revoking the certificate, and then click Revoke Certificate.
