  • Make sure that the SSL check box is enabled in your site settings. If not, activate it and save the settings before continuing

  • Now always from the settings screen of your website, click on the SSL tab to access the SSL configuration section of your website

  • This is the main screen for SSL configuration. Here you can create your CSR

  • Fill in the following fields:
    1. State: The state in which the company or the natural person owning the SSL certificate is located
    2. LocalityThe place where the company is located or the natural person owning the SSL certificate
    3. OrganisationThe company name or the name of the natural person who owns the SSL certificate
