Before you can request a certificate through our online application, you need to use the IIS Manager to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for your website.
You must have at least Service Pack 1 installed before generating a CSR.
The following characters are not accepted when entering information: < > ~ ! @ # $ % ^ * / \ ( ) ? &
If you are enrolling as an individual, enter the certificate requester's name in the Organization field, and the Doing Business As (DBA) name in the Organizational Unit field.
Now that you've generated the CSR, you must enter it in your account with us to request the SSL certificate. Then, complete the process by downloading and installing the certificate.
TIP: To get a copy, right-click the .req file, select Open With, and then select a text editor like Notepad.
Paste all of the text, including ----BEGIN NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST---- and ----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST----, in our online application.
