URGENT Action Required - Your certificate renewal


Received an email for Certificate Renewal stating the link has been forwarded for approval, but i have not received the link in my email ID,

Can you let me know in which email ID it is forwarded?

It would be helpful if i get an answer at the earliest as i have to renew the same before 24th July 2022.

Hello Smrithi,

For ACM certificate renewal, the ACM performs the MX record lookup and/or it will send to the domain owner register email. Below are the some common email which uses mostly. administrator@your_domain_name hostmaster@your_domain_name postmaster@your_domain_name webmaster@your_domain_name admin@your_domain_name

You can get the email address which are pointed to you domain certificate from the ACM console.

AWS Certificate Manager>> Certificates>> choose_the_certificate and under the domain look for Registered owners, which will show up the list of emails where the link is shared.

Also, one more quick way to check the email address for the domain certificate using Whois tool and look for "Registrant Contact" and Email row

{+} Example consider for domain amazon.com:- https://www.whois.com/whois/amazon.com
here Email is hostmaster@amazon.com

Note:- If you found your email in that list and not received then it might blocked by spam filters or lost in transit. Click on "To resend validation email" tab to re-generate again. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/acm/latest/userguide/request-domain-validation-email-for-renewal.html

[+] Using cli to resend-email for certification. $ aws acm resend-validation-email
--certificate-arn arn:aws:acm:region:account:certificate-authority/CA_ID/certificate/certificate_ID
--domain subdomain.example.com
--validation-domain example.com
