How To Generate an SSL Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for cPanel x3


Hello, in this video we will show you how
to generate a Certificate Signing Request or (CSR), in cPanel’s x3 theme. Scroll down to the security panel and
click the “SSL/TLS Manager” icon First we’ll generate a private key for
your CSR. Under the “Private Keys” header click the
“Generate, view upload, or delete your private keys” link. Select the key size, SSL.com
recommends 2,048 bits. Enter a description to help you identify
this key in the future. Click “Generate” to create the new private
key. Your private key is now created. Click “Return to SSL Manager.” Now under the “Certificate Signing Requests” header click the “Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests” link to generate your new CSR. Select your newly created private key
from the drop down menu. In the “Domains” field, enter the fully
qualified domain name of the website you are protecting. Now you’re going to fill out the other required
fields with the information requested. You can use the descriptions beneath each
field to help guide you. Here make sure to use a valid email
address, at which you can be contacted for
verification. The “Passphrase” is optional. If you choose to include a passphrase, it
must be one alphanumeric phrase with no spaces. The
passphrase is not encrypted in the CSR, so don’t use a password you might also use elsewhere. Add a description and click “Generate” to create your CSR. Okay, your CSR is now complete! Your encoded CSR can be copied and
pasted into the CSR submission page. Your CSR also remains available in the
“SSL/TLS Manager” Once your certificate is ready, you
should proceed to our next video. “Installing SSL certificates in cPanel x3.” Thanks for watching!
