Create Private Key after SSL Purchase

Hi All,


I purchased an SSL certificate but did not generate CSR or the private key.


How can I generate the CSR and private key?

Hello  , I hope you are well. Generating CSR and Private key is not difficult. Follow these steps;

  1. Ordered Standard SSL Certificate from GoDaddy
  2. Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product.
  3. Click cPanel Admin.
  4. In the Security section, click SSL/TLS.
  5. Under Certificate Signing Requests (CSR), click Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests.
  6. Complete the fields in the Generate a New Certificate Signing Request (CSR)section.
  7. At the bottom of the form, click the Generate button.
  8. On the new page, your CSR will display in the Encoded Certificate Signing Request section. You'll need to make a copy of the CSR to request an SSL certificate.

After you create a CSR, you will need to request your certificate. How you request a certificate is dependent on the type of certificate you have:
