How to initiate the reissue for a certificate?

Reasons for a reissue

The reissuing of an SSL certificate may be necessary for different reasons.

A reissue is used, for example, if you want to change information in your SSL certificate or your private key is compromised.

When requesting a reissue, the same contacts and domain names as those associated with the original SSL certificate must also be used for the new SSL certificate.
