Manage certificate deployment

This section provides information on managing the deployment of your certificates.

After you create a certificate for the first time, CPS automatically deploys it to both the staging and production networks because you cannot DoS your site when there is no existing certificate. After your first certificate, if you do not want CPS to automatically deploy your certificate to the network before you can test the certificate, you can set up your renewals to so that they deploy to a staging network before the production network. You must then go into CPS and manually push the certificate to the production network after you test it.

You can also view and edit your network deployment settings.
