Generate CSR for Plesk

Solution

 
For Plesk 7.5, this should assist with the CSR and certificate installation:
 
 
To generate a CSR for Plesk follow the instructions below: 
 
1. Specify the certificate name. 
 
2. The Bits selection allows you to choose the level of encryption of your SSL certificate. Select the appropriate number from the drop-down list.
 
3. Select the country from the drop-down list
 
4. Specify the state or province, location (city). Spell out the province and city completely; do not abbreviate them.
 
5. Enter the appropriate organization name and department/division in the field provided. The organization name is the name on which your company is oficially registered, as department you can use anything.
 
6. Enter the Domain Name for which you wish to generate the certificate signing request. The Name should be the Host + Domain Name. It looks like "www.company.com" , "company.com" or "email.company.com".
 
7. Click the Request button. A private key and certificate signing request will be generated and added to the repository. You will be able to add the other certificate parts later on. 
 
Once the CSR is generated, you can download it to the local machine by clicking the corresponding Download icon in the list of certificates, and then send the Request part (including the BEGIN and END tags) of it to the Certification Authority that will generate an SSL certificate in accordance with the information you supplied in the CSR. 
 
Make sure you do not send or show your Private Key (which might be stored inside the certificate file) to the Certification Authority or anybody else.
