Certificate Auto-Requester and Auto-Installer:

PositiveSSL provides useful tools to automatically create a public/private key pair on your local machine and then use this key pair to generate a CSR and automatically submit it to Positivessl over a secure SSL connection to create your certificate for IIS 6.0 and Apache.

You can then collect and automatically install the certificate for an IIS 6.0 web server.

Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

The first part of enrolling for your SSL Certificate is to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). CSR generation is wholly dependent on the software you use on your web server. Select your web server software from the list after reading the following general points:

General Points to remember before creating your CSR:

  • The Common Name field should be the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) or the web address for which you plan to use your Certificate, e.g. the area of your site you wish customers to connect to using SSL. For example, an SSL Certificate issued for comodoca.com will not be valid for secure.comodoca.com. If the web address to be used for SSL is secure.comodoca.com, ensure that the common name submitted in the CSR is secure.comodoca.com

Our SSL Certificates are compatible with almost all popular web server software. Please see our knowledge base on all CSR generation instructions.
