MarketConnect Digicert SSL manual renewal changes

Currently for SSLs that are standalone orders or don't have a valid connection to the hosting account, whmcs reuses the old CSR to renew the certificate.

This is bad for several reasons:
1. A new CSR is pretty much required for IIS, using a cert that is generated on a old one(i.e. no longer present in the system) is possible but is a manual & lengthy process
2. Re-using CSRs is bad practice, sometimes you need to change the cert details, or key length.
3. Re-using CSRs is a security issue in case your private key is leaked.


We would like to see the ability to turn off the automated renewals and the ability to submit a new CSR for each renewal as well as a TODO entry for the renewal.
