|City||Name of the city where your organization is registered/located. Do not abbreviate.|
|State||Name of the state where your organization is located. Do not abbreviate.|

On the new page, your CSR will display in the Encoded Certificate Signing Request section. You'll need to make a copy of the CSR to request an SSL certificate.
