    I am not very much familiar with SSL. One of ourd website was SSL enabled. Recently we received a mail saying the SSL will be expired and need a renew.

    I would like to know what if I dont renew SSL. Will the website stop working?

    Thanks in advance,

    No, your website will not stop working but you will loose the security. The traffic will not be trusted by your SSL and it will work as non-ssl.


    Happy Coding

    Hai Sanketh,
    SSL(Secure Socket Layer) is one of the component for the security implementation for your website.
    By using SSL, we can be ensure that our website will be having the secure transactions while sending and receiving data.
    This SSL is applied through the client certificate which is nothing but a key provided by the security providers. So you basically need to purchase the client certificate and then install it for your website.
    Once you install the Security certificate, your website will run with the Http as well as with the Https(Http with Secure).
    When the website is running under the Https, when there is the data which is going outside of your website, an additional security bit will be applied through the SSL(Client Certificate) which is almost unbreakable by the intruders and your data will be safe.
    The Client Certificate is having some validity and we need to renew it to extend further. So for that we need to pay to the client certificate provider to renew it and you can continue with the Https.
    If you are not renewing your SSL or the Client Certificate, your website will still run on http.
    Hope it will be helpful to you.

    No your website not stooped it will running but the SSL security will not working.
    But the main issue is when user try to connect your website they get a warning messages regarding SSL expiration. so may be user doesn't procedure after that.

    Off course if data is crucial on you website than you must renewal the SSL certificate.

    The application will still work with a warning to the User that the security certificate is not renewed and there will be a Red line in the HttpS: in the browser.

    Its better to renew it to make the application in a trust level.

    Hello Sanketh

    If your SSL is not renewed your website will be still up and running.If your site is hosting very sensitive information then you need to have your SSL renewed.

    SSL is mainly used for protecting sensitive information which is sent across the Internet.
    SSL will help you in securing the information.

    Please work with your client or the organization and decided whether to extend or to drop
