Comodo and DomenySSL are deprecating SGC

The move away from SGC to your new certificate type will not impact your website security or browser ubiquity as all Comodo and DomenySSL certificates are trusted by 99.9% of browsers and mobile devices and use the very latest security technologies (including SHA-2 algorithms, 2048 signatures and RSA/ECC keys).

Why Comodo and DomenySSL are deprecating SGC?

While very important in the early part of the millennium, SGC technology has become increasingly less relevant in recent years. A US government mandate forced browser vendors like Microsoft and Netscape to provide only 40-56 bit encryption in browsers that were intended for overseas markets. SGC allowed website owners to overcome this restriction by ‘stepping up’ the encryption level to 128-bit. Over time, the restriction was relaxed altogether and browsers were allowed to encrypt at the higher levels by default. Unfortunately, many people continued to use these older browsers, which meant SGC played an important role in ensuring these users were protected at the highest levels. Comodo has decided to retire SGC because the number of people still using these older browsers has fallen to insignificant levels. This is in accordance with a general movement away from SGC among major certificate authorities.

What after August 1st?

If you run a online business, you are sure to use Google AdWords. Perhaps this is one of the main traffic sources on your site, so the last message you want to see is "Your account has been suspended ...". And yet, you can expect it if your site is not SSL-secured.

Starting 1st of August 2016, Comodo and DomenySSL will no longer offer SGC variants of certificates. As your account has a valid SGC certificate which will be up for renewal in the future, the company has prepared a list of recommended alternatives.
