How do I revoke my SSL certificate?

This article will explain how you can revoke your SSL certificate.

If your website is no longer operational or if you accidentally requested your certificate for the wrong business, you may wish to revoke your SSL certificate. Doing this will cancel your certificate and remove HTTPS from your associated website.

If, however, you are changing your SSL certificate type, you may wish to re-key your certificate instead.

Please note: this process is irreversible and cannot be undone.
