Fastly plans to retire our Certificate Procurement, Management, and Hosting product by March 9th, 2021. As part of these plans, Fastly will be deprecating and eventually removing portions of the existing Fastly web interface that currently allow customers to manage procured certificates. Fastly TLS, with its associated web interface and API, will include replacement functionality for managing multiple domains on dedicated certificates.

On November 8, 2019 we announced our intention to retire the Round-robin director. All customers who were using the Round-robin director have ceased using it. We are retiring the Round-robin director effective immediately. Our existing Random director, with its associated API, offers similar functionality to the retired Round-robin director policy.

Due to improved security standards adopted by the CA/Browser Forum, the validity period of random values used for domain validation when requesting TLS certificates will be reduced to a 30-day rolling window. This change will take effect for our Shared TLS options and our Certificate Procurement, Management, and Hosting service on May 25, 2020.

In addition, we plan to retire shared certificates for TLS 1.2 connections by December 31, 2020. Fastly TLS, with its associated web interface and API, offers similar functionality to the shared certificate products.
