Try signing up as an Organization - your certs will be good for 2 years 
then. I just renewed one of them:

   # openssl x509 -in server.crt -text | grep 200

It's been so long since I've done it, but I think you have to fax over a 
copy of your business certificate and whatnot to get a true Org status 
to maintain all your servers.

Here ya go, it's in the Wiki:
