Changing the common name after the certificate has been issued

Article Number: 000070664

User-added image
The name of the site is specified in the "Issued to" field of the certificate. This name must match whatever is being displayed in the address bar. The "common name" of the certificate cannot be changed without invalidating the certificate. The only course of action would be to generate a new Certificate Signing Request (CSR), this time specifying the correct common name, and then to order a new certificate.
