Additional Information:

  • Be sure to check the common name field. You may have used an IP address (e.g. 178.0.1.23) or a server name (e.g. mywebserver) instead of a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) such as "www.mydomain.com" or Domain Name such as “mydomain.com.” You must specify an FQDN or Domain Name.
  • Be sure not to include any illegal characters in any of the fields of the CSR. Illegal characters are [! @ # $ % ^ ( ) ~ ? > < & / \ , . " ']
  • If you are located in the United Kingdom, do not specify your country code as "UK," rather it must be "GB."
  • You must include the header and footer of the CSR in the enrollment form. The header and footer will look like:
    ----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST -----
    encoded data
    -----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST------
    Make sure that there are 5 dashes on each side of Begin and End certificate request. There should also be no trailing spaces in the CSR.

"Very fast delivery. Installation was easy with no problems. If you are installing a wildcard SSL certificate on cPanel, you need to specify the actual domain name, don't try to install it on *.domain.com , you have to install it on each subdomain such as admin.domain.com, shop.domain.com,..etc. Use the same certificate for each subdomain you install. Good luck!"
