|Important: In order to generate an SSL certificate, you must first obtain a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from your host. If you are hosted with Rebel, please visit our article How do I generate a CSR? for instruction.|
Login to your Rebel account and select SSL Manager.
Click on the red pencil icon and click Complete Your SSL.
Paste the CSR text, including the -----BEGIN/END CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- portion, into the box labelled Certificate Signing Request. Click the Validate button, and then click Next.
Enter your contact details, including an approver email address (please note that Organization and Extended SSL certificates don’t actually use approver emails, but you must select one anyway), and click Submit Application.
If you have purchased an Alpha or Domain SSL, confirm the SSL application via the approver email. If you have purchased an Organization or Extended SSL, you will be subject to some additional vetting by our SSL provider, Globalsign.
As soon as the vetting is complete you will be able to download your certificate in the SSL Manager, hover over the Download SSL arrow, and click on Certificate. The certificate download will include several files. In most cases, the file you need is called X509.cert.
