Domain Validation Policy Update

Last updated: 2021-12-27 12:26:03

In order to comply with the requirements of CA/Browser Forum, the following changes will be introduced to domain validation policies, which take effect from December 1, 2021.

From December 1, 2021, file validation supports only issuing the SSL certificate for the current validated domain, but not wildcard SSL certificates as well as its subdomains.

Currently, Tencent Cloud’s SSL Certificate Service only requires validating the primary domain (e.g., dnspod.cn), and will also issue SSL certificates for wildcard certificates (e.g., *.dnspod.cn or *.sub.dnspod.cn) and its subdomains (e.g., sub.dnspod.cn or sub2.sub1.dnspod.cn).

But from December 1, 2021, if a domain is validated using file validation, the certificate can only be issued for the domain validated. For example, if the domain dnspod.cn is validated using file validation, an SSL certificate can be issued only for the dnspod.cn domain, but not *.dnspod.cn or sub.dnspod.cn.


Please be informed that Tencent Cloud discontinued the file validation mode for wildcard certificates on November 21, 2021.
