Generate a CSR (certificate signing request)
To request an SSL certificate for your server or a code/driver signing certificate, you have to generate a certificate signing request (CSR). This identifies which server will use your certificate, as well as the domain names (common names) you'll use for SSL certificates.
Note: If you're using an SSL certificate on a GoDaddy shared hosting account, you do not need to generate a CSR; we take care of that for you.
How you generate a CSR depends on the type of certificate you're requesting and your operating system/control panel.
