You can create a certificate signing request (csr) for cpanel using the following instructions. Once you have created the csr, copy and paste it into the ssl.com certificate order page:

Generate CSR for cPanel 11

Step 1: Generate a Private Key

  1. Login to cPanel.
  2. Click SSL/TLS Manager > Private Keys (KEY).
  3. Scroll down near the bottom of the page to the Generate a New Key section.
  4. Select the desired domain name from the pull-down menu, or type it into the Host field (e.g., www.domain.com).
  5. Select the key bit-length. We recommend 2048 (2048 is required for EV certificates).
  6. Click the Generate button to generate the new key.
  7. A new private key is generated and is stored on the server.

Step 2: Generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

  1. Click SSL/TLS Manager > Certificate Signing Request (CSR).
  2. Using the CSR Legend on the right-hand side of this page, fill out the Generate a New Certificate Signing Request form.
  3. Click the Generate button to generate the new CSR.
  4. cPanel shows you the CSR in the top box under SSL Certificate Signing Request (don't worry about the contents of the box below it, you don't need it).
  5. Copy everything in the top box.
  6. Save a copy of your CSR. The CSR will be needed during the online order process. You'll be asked to copy-and-paste your CSR into a special CSR box.
