help i've inherited a .corp domain

I inherited a .corp domain at my new company.  We have several SSL certs and external DNS names that have the .CORP suffix associated with them.  This year all the 3rd party CA vendors have told me that they will not renew my .CORP ssl certificates and that I should figure out how to rename my external DNS names to something other than .CORP.  We do own a public .COM address and could use that on the outside for DNS and certificate generation.  But... I'd have to stand up this domain because it doesn't exist yet, and I'd have to work out some kind of trust between my existing .CORP domain and this new .COM domain.  

I guess my question is,.... is there an easier way to accomplish this?  Migrating all objects from the .CORP domain to the .COM domain would take at least 12 months given the complexity of the environment.

thanks in advance

Actually, you don't have to change your internal domain to .com.  Just use a split DNS where you have (in your case) a .CORP dns tree (this is what your internal computers will primarily use for communication) and a secondary .COM domain so that your internal clients can access externally available internal resources by their respective DNS name.

Yeah I already figured it would be a heap of work.  and we don't publish .corp outside the company just internal.
