Generate CSR without SAN on Inmotion hosting SSL control panel

  • updated
  • Answered


The company I purchased an SSL certificate through requires a CSR. 

I have been able to generate the CSR but it always includes a SAN. 

The company tells me the code cannot include a SAN, but I am unable to create one without a SAN. 

Can anyone guide me on how to create a CSR with no SAN?

How would you rate the customer service you received?

Hi lewishadleighbrown, 

Thank you so much for your question! You could run it in SSH on a server, however, cPanel may not like that action. Another option would be to obtain a free SSL for the domains, then you would not need to create a CSR. However, if your only option is creating a CSR without a SAN, reach out to our live support for additional assistance. They will be able to take a closer look and hopefully help you resolve the issue. 

Kindest regards,
