Request an SSL certificate

After you purchase an SSL certificate, you need to request it for the domain name (or "common name") you want to use.

You can only request SSL certificates for domain names you control.

Before you start

Before you request your certificate, we recommend checking out the following information:

OK - you're ready

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Click SSL Certificates.
  3. Next to the account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. Select one of the following based on where you're hosting your certificate:

    Anywhere elseSelect Provide a CSR, and then enter the CSR from your server.

    NOTE: If you're requesting a UCC certificate, your CSR should include the SANs you want to use.
  5. UCC certs only — Enter any Subject Alternate Names you want to use, and then click Add.
  6. Depending on your issuance type, do one of the following:
