Adding an Additional Domain Name

If you have a multi-domain SSL certificate and available quota for additional domain names, you can associate additional domain names to the certificate after it is issued.

This topic describes how to add additional domain names.

Prerequisites

  • The target certificate is in the Issued state.
  • There is available quota for additional domain names.

Constraints

  • A certificate takes effect as of the date of the first issuance.
  • You can download the certificate after you submit the new additional domain names for approval. However, the downloaded certificate does not protect these new domain names that are still being approved.
  • After the approval completes and the certificates is issued, you can download the new certificate. The original certificate cannot be downloaded anymore. Keep it properly.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner of the page and choose Security & Compliance > Cloud Certificate Management Service. The service console is displayed.
  3. In the navigation pane, choose SSL Certificate Manager > SSL Certificates.
  4. In the Operation column of the target certificate, click More > Add Additional Domain Name. The Add Additional Domain Name dialog box is displayed.
  5. Complete the information based on site requirements. Table 1 describes the required parameters. Figure 1 shows an example.

    Email Address

    Enter a correct email address. After the certificate is submitted for review, HUAWEI CLOUD sends notifications (about certificate issuing) to this email address. Please check it in time.

    NOTICE:

    A CA sends confirmation emails to the email address of the domain name administrator. After submitting your application for approval, log in to the domain name administrator's mailbox, check for the confirmation email, and perform the confirmation required in the email.

  6. Click OK.

    After you submit the request for adding additional domain names, the SSL certificate management page is displayed, and the certificate status changes to CA verifying (domain name addition).

Follow-up Procedure

After the certificate approval request is submitted, the CA sends a domain name verification email to your email address. You need to verify the domain name as required. Your certificate will remain in the CA verifying (domain name addition) state and will not be approved if you do not complete the domain name verification. Upon receiving your request, the CA will review your request and send a verification email. Reply to the CA immediately after receiving the verification email. If you fail to complete the verification timely, it takes longer to receive your certificates.

Domain name verification is required if you want to add an additional domain name. The certificate can be issued after the domain name is verified and approved by the CA.

For details, see Verifying Domain Name Ownership.

Other Operations

If you want to change the additional domain name or change the email address of the contact person after an additional domain name is submitted for approval, you can withdraw the application. Perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner of the page and choose Security & Compliance > Cloud Certificate Management Service. The service console is displayed.
  3. In the navigation pane, choose SSL Certificate Manager > SSL Certificates.
  4. In the Operation column of the target certificate, click Withdraw Application. The Cancel Application dialog box is displayed.
  5. Click Submit.

    If Request for canceling the application submitted successfully is displayed in the upper right corner of the page, the request is canceled successfully.

    At this time, the certificate is still in the CA verifying (domain name addition) state. After the application is canceled successfully, the certificate status changes to Issued.
