Want to know how you can generate CSR in Plesk?

Of course, you do!

It might sound complicated, but the CSR key could be generated directly from the Plesk Panel.

Why Should You Generate CSR in Plesk?

A CSR or a Certificate Signing Request is required to activate a digital SSL certificate. It is usually generated on the server where the certificate needs to be installed.

In other words, if you want to generate an SSL certificate, you’d need to submit a CSR to the Certificate Authority.

To learn how you can generate the CSR key from the Plesk Panel, keep reading and follow the instructions below:

  1. Login to Plesk Panel
  2. Click on Select Domains
  3. Select SSL/TLS Certificate
  4. Fill the Details in the Request Certificate Wizard
  5. Click on the Request Button
  6. Click on Certificate Name
  7. The CSR Key is Generated

Moving on, click on the “Add SSL/TSL Certificate”

2.       Fill the Details in the Request Certificate Wizard
