Generate a CSR (certificate signing request)

To request an SSL certificate for your server or a code/driver signing certificate, you have to generate a certificate signing request (CSR). This identifies which server will use your certificate, as well as the domain names (common names) you'll use for SSL certificates.

Note: If you're using an SSL certificate on the primary domain name of a shared hosting account, you do not need to generate a CSR; we take care of that for you.

How you generate a CSR depends on the type of certificate you're requesting and your operating system/control panel.

Miscellaneous CSR instructions:

Our certificates are compatible with all types of web servers, even if we do not have CSR instructions for them. Please contact your server documentation for further information on generating a CSR if you do not find the instructions that you need above.
