If I'm reading GoDaddy's UI right, if I generate a new private key and
obtain a new certificate for that key, I have 72 hours until the old
certificate (the one that's currently serving the live traffic) is revoked.

So we need to time this right. What is the time window you can work on
this? I'm also traveling over the next 8 days, so we want to make sure we
find the right window to do this.
