Question: How do I re-issue my current certificate with SHA-2 (SHA-256)?
Answer: It depends on when your certificate is set to expire.
If your certificate presently expires:
- BEYOND 31 December 2016, then Comodo automatically will provide you with a SHA-2 signed certificate upon re-issuance. Please see How do I get a replacement certificate? on how to re-issue your certificate.
- PRIOR TO 31 December 2016, then please contact Comodo Support either by phone or ticket/email.
