CSR Help


How do I create a CSR for my website. I’m trying to renew my SSL certificate through Thawte, and need to provide them with a CSR to begin.

Please help!



I believe that Dreamhost uses cPanel for their customer interface. Here are the instructions from Thawte regarding generating a CSR using cPanel:

Best Regards,


We use a custom control panel, not cPanel.

You can generate a CSR on any of our servers using the “openssl” command-line tool. Our Support team can do this for you if you cannot do so yourself.
