  6. On the following screen select your Hashing Algorithm, then copy and paste the new CSR.
    Note: If the SSL certificate that is being replaced contains Subject Alternative Names (SANs), you will need to select one of the following Redeem options: 
    • Edit & Add Additional Domains
    • Edit & Delete Additional Domains
    • Reissue without changing the values of the Additional Domains
  7. Accept the Subscriber Agreement and click Submit
