Generate CSR

CSR and Private Key Generation Has Never Been Easier

When it comes to the whole SSL process, generation of Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is one of the most crucial steps involved. Essentially, it is an application through which you get the SSL ball rolling. You must make sure every detail you enter is 100% correct, just like you would for your passport.

We can't stress enough the significance of the CSR generation process. To make this process easier, we have created a tool that can help you generate a CSR within minutes, in your browser. Now you don't need to waste your time entering every detail via console commands on your web server. All you need to do is enter the details in your web browser and voila!!

Let's get going

To create an SSL certificate, you must have a generated a CSR file first. Our CSR Generation tool allows you to generate CSR for free. Just follow below steps and our tool will take care of the rest.

  1. First, enter the correct information in the boxes below. Enter legally registered details of your organization if you want to purchase OV or EV SSL certificate. It is fine if you use your personal name for DV SSL certificates.
  2. Once your CSR is generated, simply Copy & Paste the CSR into a text editor (i.e. Notepad) and save it as csr.txt. You will need this file once you order your SSL certificate.
  3. Now here is a very crucial step. The second code you see generated below is your Private Key. Copy & Paste the Private Key into a text editor (i.e. Notepad) the same way you did for CSR. Save it in a safe place and DO NOT share it with anyone, DO NOT.

Note: If required, you can always rename these files in the future.

Note: A Wildcard SSL certificate ensures the security of your website's Sub-Domains. In order to accomplish this, the format of the common name in your Certificate Signing Request (CSR) would be "*" instead of only "" Please keep this in mind while generating a CSR for a wildcard certificate.

* Domain:
CN - Common Name

Enter the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of your server (with or without the WWW).

* Company:
O - Organization Name

This should be the legal name of your company/organization (i.e. ABC Enterprise, LLC). For DV, you just need to enter your personal name.

* Division:
OU - Organization Unit

This is the division of your organization handling the certificate (i.e. IT department).

* City:
L- Locality

The city that you are located in (i.e. New York)

* State:
ST - State or Province

The state or province in which you are in (i.e. Florida)

* Country:
C - Country code

Choose your country (i.e. United States).


Please type your e-mail address.

* Root Length:

2048-bit is the industry standard. Only choose 4096-bit if you have specific requirements.

* Captcha:
Please type captcha code.

"Very fast delivery. Installation was easy with no problems. If you are installing a wildcard SSL certificate on cPanel, you need to specify the actual domain name, don't try to install it on * , you have to install it on each subdomain such as,,..etc. Use the same certificate for each subdomain you install. Good luck!"
