(!)Important: In accordance with the Comodo and GeoTrust Certificate Authorities policy change, starting from December 20, 2010, SSL Certificates can be issued using CSR codes 2048-bit and higher length.

Example: Country Name (2 letter code): US State or Province Name (full name): California Locality Name/ City: Los Angeles Company: MyCompany Ltd Company Division (eg, section): IT, Support, Sales etc. Common Name: yourdomain.com Email Address: any email address you like (it will not be used for any email delivery)

  • Copy the information that appears in the text box. The Certificate Request portion will be used for the Certificate Activation process. If RSA Private key is also available, make sure that you have copied and backed it up because it will not be saved anywhere and will be needed during the installation.
