To activate the SSL certificate you acquired, you need to contact your server administrator to receive your Certificate Signing Request (CSR). The CSR is generated with the server software and contains necessary technical information for the SSL application.
In case your SSL certificate shall cover both, the www version (www.yourdomain.com) and the root version (yourdomain.com) of your domain, the CSR has to be generated for the www version. If the CSR is generated for the root version only, it won´t cover the www version.
Please keep the private key secret, it will be created while generating the CSR, so don´t reveal it to any third party. Otherwise your SSL certificate can be compromised.
Once you have received your CSR, follow the instructions below:
Please note that SSL certificates need to be activated within 90 after the purchase, otherwise they will expire irrevocably.
