Change an Approval Email Address


This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to change the approval email address to any of the other pre-listed email addresses.

Note: The pre-listed approval email addresses are generated after our system is provided with the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) or the certificate's order Common Name (CN), which then searches domain ownership with WHOIS Lookup to get the required information. Whilst you are in the process of this, our system tries to scan your domain name's WHOIS records, which may take up to a few minutes. In case you are not able to see any pre-listed email addresses being generated after a few minutes, please refresh your browser (press F5 button).
