Create a CSR

A CSR or Certificate Signing request is a block of encoded text that is given to your SSL provider when applying for an SSL Certificate.

To create a CSR:

  1. Go to SSL > CSR in the STRATUS sidebar menu.
  2. Choose either existing New Domain or Existing Domain Make sure you have included all domains listed in the URL section including www versions.
  3. Fill out the remaining sections fully. If you do not have an entry for Department, you may enter N/A
  4. Click CREATE to create the CSR. A private key is created at the same time that you create the CSR and saved in the panel. You only need to provide the CSR to your SSL provider. The private key will be used during your SSL installation once ready.

Note: If you generate a wildcart certificate, make sure you also add the root domain. Example - Domain: *.mystore.com, SAN Domain: mystore.com
