Depending on if you are a Free or Paid user we have different ways of how the quota is calculated.
Below you can find a brief explanation of the most common cases:
👉Certificates in "draft" and "pending validation" status are counted against that quota
👉 Make sure not to create any duplicates as they count against your quota of 3
In the example shown, the user has 1 Draft certificate, 1 issued and 1 expired certificate; in order to issue 1 more certificate, the user has to cancel the draft certificate. If you don't know how to cancel a certificate, please check our this article: Cancelling an SSL Certificate
👉 unlimited 90-Day Certificates
👉 3 1-Year Certificates
You can create 3x independent 1-year certificates for different domains or create one 1-year certificate for one domain and renew it two times.
In the example above, the user created a 1-year certificate with 3 domains which will consume the quota for 3 1-year certificates for this user. In order to create a 4th 1-year certificate, the user needs to move to a higher subscription plan
👉 unlimited 90-Day Certificates and wildcard certificates
👉 10 1-Year Certificates
👉 1 1-year wildcard certificate
The quota for a 1-year certificate is calculated the same way as for the Basic subscription. You can create 10x independent 1-year certificates for different domains or create one 1-year certificate for one domain and renew it ten times. The rules for multi-domain certificates are the same and with a wildcard SSL certificate, you can secure unlimited subdomains using one certificate at a single level.
⚠️ Use your wildcard certificate wisely as you only have 1
👉 25 1-Year Certificates
👉 3 1-year wildcard certificate
You can issue 25 1-year certificates independently or use the multi-domain feature as long as you don't exceed the 25 domains in total for the Business subscription. With this subscription plan you can create 3 wildcard certificates.
⚠ Important to notice
❗Regardless of the subscription plan you are using, revoking a certificate will not free up space in your quota. Learn more about certificate revocation here .
❗Your expired certificates will always be calculated in your quota and they will not free up space once they expire.
