Requesting a CSR for 3rd Party SSLs in AMP

When you either purchase a third party SSL or are transferring an existing SSL from another host over to us, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as a CSR. The CSR gives server and domain specific information to the SSL issuer so the certificate they provide will only be usable for your domain on a specific server.

Thoughts on “Requesting a CSR for 3rd Party SSLs in AMP

  • Inmmotion have too many instructional pages, if some one strat to reading at 20yr’s age he wiil be 65, while he finish.

    I tried to find out, “How much inmmotion will bill me, installing third party SSL”? but unable to locate that page. Live support redirected me to this page, which is silent about charge.

    Is third party SSL instalation charge is free?

  • The price is $49 on shared hosting, just FYI.

    And I have been waiting and waitng on my installation and the Tech Support is down.

    I have a few hours to get a demo site up and I need this installed.

    It is just “Awaiting Installation” by you guys…

    • Thank you for contacting us. I checked your account and the CSR was issues within 2 hours of your request. It should have been delivered to your Primary Email address. You may have to check your spam box.

      Since this is just the public forums, I recommend contacting Live Support for additional account specific information.

      Thank you,

    • Hello Lori-Ann,

      Sorry for the problem with CSR. We’re not sure how you’re getting to the Simple CSR Request. When we test here, it’s definitely working. Can you describe the specific steps you’re taking? Screenshots would also help, if possible. You should be in AMP to get to this request, so just to be sure we’re on the same page, you should be clicking on the Simple CSR Request for 3rd party SSL icon. Give us a little more information on what’s happening and we can investigate the issue further.

      If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
