I am not sure what should I input in CSR details

Feb 2, 2017

A CSR or Certificate Signing request is a block of encrypted text that is generated on the server that the certificate will be used on. It contains information that will be included in your certificate

 

 (Common Name (CN)): Enter the domain of your website (i.e. www.myside.org) in the "first- and lastname" field... It looks like "www.company.com" or "company.com".

Organizational Unit (OU): This field is optional; but can be used to help identify certificates registered to an organization. The Organizational Unit (OU) field is the name of the department or organization unit making the request.

Organization (O): If your company or department has an &, @, or any other symbol using the shift key in its name, you must spell out the symbol or omit it to enroll.  Example: XY & Z Corporation would be XYZ Corporation.

Locality or City (L): The Locality field is the city or town name, for example: Mountain View.

State or Province (S): Spell out the state completely; do not abbreviate the state or province name, for example: California

Country Name (C): Use the two-letter code without punctuation for country, for example: US or IN.

 

An example of a CSR file is as below
