How to generate a CSR in WHM

The following instructions are for WHM 11. If you have a different version of WHM, you will go through a similar process but you may need to ask your web host for specific instructions.

  1. Login to your WebHost Manager control panel.

  2. On the left menu click on Generate a SSL Certificate and Signing Request.

  3. In the Generate a New Certificate Signing Request section, enter the following information:

    Email - Your email address where the CSR will be sent.

    Password - Make up a password to be associated with the certificate. You will need to remember this password later.

    Host - The domain that you enetered or selected when generating the private key.

    City - The city in which your organization is located.

    State - The state in which your organization is located. Do not use an abbreviation.

    Country - If needed, you can find your two-digit country code in our list.

    Company Name - The legally registered name of your organization/company.

    Company Division - The name of your department within the organization (frequently this entry will be listed as "IT," "Web Security," or is simply left blank).

  4. Click the Create button.

  5. Copy and paste the entire CSR (including the BEGIN and END lines) into the DigiCert order form.

  6. After you receive your SSL Certificate from DigiCert, you can install it.
