2. From the SSL Manger click Private Keys (KEY). 3. Enter your host name (e.g., 'www.mysite.com') under Generate a New Key and press Generate.

4. The next step is to create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). Navigate back to the SSL Manager page.

5. Select Certificate Signing Requests (CSR). 6. Fill out the form for the CSR under Generate a New Certificate Signing Request .

7. Select the Generate button to generate the CSR.

8. Click the View button to view your new CSR and copy-and-paste it into a simple text file.

9. Save a copy of your CSR. The CSR will be needed during the purchase process. You'll be asked to copy-and-paste your CSR into a special CSR box. Below is an example of what your CSR will look like. This is a example only and cannot be used to generate your SSL certificate.
