How do I generate a CSR code?

Typically, a Certificate Signing Request (or CSR) code is generated upon your request by your hosting company for the website you want to secure with an SSL certificate.

However, you may generate a CSR code yourself (or your hosting company may advise you to do so). In which case, select your web server from the list below and follow the instructions.

    • cPanel
    • Apache OpenSSL/ModSSL/Nginx/Heroku
    • WHM 11.48
    • Tomcat (using keytool)
    • Plesk 12
    • IIS 7
    • IIS 8
    • IIS 10
    • DirectAdmin
    • Exchange 2007 (PowerShell)
    • AWS
    • Synology NAS
    • Vesta CP
    • Mac OS X
    • Sun Java System Web Server 7.x
    • Webmin
    • Node.js
    • Exchange 2013 (EAC)
    • Exchange 2013 (Shell)
    • Glassfish

Note: CSR codes should have no less than 2048-bit key size.

If you are activating a Multi-domain certificate, and your server does not allow you to generate a CSR for multiple common names, activate your certificate using just one common name. You will be able to add all required SANs through your account in naijadomain during the activation process.

Please note: Normally, a dedicated IP address is required for SSL installation. However, you may install your SSL certificate on a shared IP address using the Server Name Indication (SNI) protocol extension available in your cPanel. You can learn more about the differences between a dedicated IP and SNI technology in this article. When contacting our support team regarding this issue, please specify whether you wish to order a dedicated IP address or have your SSL installed on a server’s shared IP.
