Posted by on 25 March 2015 01:03 PM

If you’ve just purchased a SSL or Digital Certificate, you’ve got to enroll your website to the Certificate Authority (Comodo) to get the certificate issued by them.

Before proceeding, ensure you’ve generated the Private & Public Key or Certificate Signing Request (CSR) from your web server( cPanel / Plesk )

Once you’ve done that, you can proceed to enroll your certificate. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Login to your account.

  2. You will now see a page that lists all purchases made by you on our system.

  3. Click on the domain name associated with the Digital Certificate.

  4. Click on “Issue Certificate

  5. Now copy the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) the that you’ve generated from your web server and paste it here.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Select the option to receive the verification email from Certificate issuing authority(Comodo).

  8. If you select Other, ensure that the same email appears on the Whois listing of your domain name and Privacy protection is disabled for the domain.

  9. Click on ‘Send application to Certificate Authority’.

Now Sit back for a bit,  you’ll get an email from Comodo (Certificate Authority) on the approver email address.

  1. Copy the validation code from the email and click on the link provided.

  2. Enter the validation code on page that opened and click Next.

  3. After entering the code successfully, click on Close window.

That’s all. Give it a couple of hours and you’ll get an email which will have your SSL or Digital Certificate ready for installation. You can also see this certificate in your BigRock account.
