Check List

Before you place an order for an SSL certificate you must make sure you have all the information required and have completed all the steps leading up to generating the "Certificate Signing Request" (CSR).

Once you have all the information required you can start running through the steps and place your order.

INFORMATION REQUIRED

Account setup on its own dedicate IP address on the server

You must have the domain already setup using a dedicated IP address, certificates will not work on shared IP addresses and the account must be configured before you can generate the CSR.
The following information is required when you generate the CSR.
We ask you to enter the information as well so that we can check it against the CSR to ensure your details are correct before we generate the SSL Certificate.

Host Name

The Host Name is the domain that you wish the certificate to be issued for, if you want to be able to secure https://www.domain.com then you must enter www.domain.com is this field. If on the other hand you only wanted the certificate to work with https://domain.com then enter domain.com, the certificate will only work with the domain that you enter.

Admin Email

The Admin Email address is the address that the CSR certificate was generated for and sent to.

Company Name

As it suggests this field is for the Company Name this information will be embedded in the SSL Certificate and so must be accurate.

Company Division

As it suggests this field is for the Company Division, if you are issuing this for the sales area you can enter Sales, if for the Headquarters then HQ and so on. Again this information will be embedded in the SSL Certificate and should be accurate.

Country Code

You need to enter the two character country code, for a full list of codes see Country Codes for CSR Generation this information will be embedded in the SSL Certificate and so must be accurate.

State

This is for the State that the company is registered in, this information will be embedded in the SSL Certificate and so must be accurate.

City

This is the city that the company is registered in, this information will be embedded in the SSL Certificate and so must be accurate.

Contact Email

This email address will become part of the company profile and will be embedded in the SSL Certificate and so must be accurate.

Password

The Password is the password used when you generated the CSR.
That's it for the CSR information so you can generate the CSR at that point.

Generate CSR

When you generate the CSR you will receive a copy via email from most control panels make sure you keep a copy of the email. The CSR itself will Start with -----BEGIN NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- then have all the information and then it will end with -----END NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- when you are asked for the CSR you must copy the whole thing including the start and end lines.

You will also get a second email in most cases with the RSA Private key you will need this information when you go to install your certificate later. It is also important if you ever move the domain to another server so keep the email in a safe place you may need it later. You may also store he RSA Private Key with us when you place your order, that way should you ever need to reinstall the certificate or you move hosts you will have all the information you need.

Now for all the extra information we will need when you enter your order.
  • First you will need to set up an account with us, done that then you will need to login (Go to the My Account Page).
  • When you go to the Order page your pricing for certificates will be displayed
  • To place your order click on the Buy Now button, that will take you to the order page where we will require the following information.
    If you already have it then you can go ahead and place your order.
In addition to all the information listed above you will also need the following.

Server Type

The Server Type is only required if you are having problems with the SSL Certificate, if you are unsure please use 'Other'.

Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

This is the important piece of information you generated from the server, make sure you copy the whole thing and paste it in here.
On the order page we show you a demo of what it should look like, the contents of yours will be different of course but you get the idea.

RSA Private Key (optional)

This is the second email you recieved when you generated the CSR, make sure you copy the whole thing and paste it in here.
On the order page we show you a demo of what it should look like, the contents of yours will be different of course but you get the idea.
This step is optional but should you ever need to reinstall the certificate you will require both the RSA Private Key and the Certificate to complete the install.
