I revoked the certificate for my website and now every time I navigate to its SSL version, e.g. https://example.com, I get an alert from all browsers that the site should not be trusted.

How can resolve this issue when someone tries to open the site from HTTPS?

That is what revoking a certificate is supposed to do: use of the certificate can no longer be trusted.

You will need to obtain a new SSL certificate and install it on your server so that your visitors can see your HTTPS site again without receiving an alert.

  • I don't need anymore the certificate for many reasons. It's not a way to revoke the certificate and not have the alert from all browsers that the site should not be trusted?

  • The only way to not get that alert for a revoked certificate would be to stop using the certificate. Dec 20, 2013 at 14:59
  • So it's better to revoke the certificate or wait until expired and not renew it? If expired then the alerts will be stop or not?
