Log in to WHM, this can typically be accessed by going to https://domain.com:2087.
Note: You may encounter error message "Your connection is not private" or something similar when attempting to visit your WHM login page. This is due to your login page using a self-signed certificate by default. Please disregard this and proceed past the error message.
Enter your Username/Password and click Log in.
View your WHM Home page.
Click the SSL/TLS button.
In your SSL/TLS Manager page, click Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request.

Note 1: We do not recommend sending the private key via email over an insecure channel.
Note 2: By default, WHM will automatically generate the corresponding private key if "2,048 bits (Recommended)" is selected as the Key Size.
If you already have a private key created that you wish to use, select the Key Size dropdown and select the appropriate option.
Note 3: To avoid common mistakes when filling out your CSR details, reference our Overview of Certificate Signing Request article.
