The certificate signing request (CSR) must be created from a 2048-bit or larger key pair. Check the Comodo Knowledgebase for your particular web server and instructions for generating a certificate signing request. At some point during the process you will be prompted to enter values for the following six fields that will be encoded in your certificate:
Enter the appropriate values for your server (Common-name) and department (Organizational Unit). All other fields should be entered exactly as shown (no abbreviations, punctuation, capitalization changes, extra spaces, etc.) If you are prompted for webmaster email address, phone number, or challenge phrase, enter any reasonable values. These three items are optional and not actually used to create your certificate. If during the process your server prompts you for a Certificate Authority, enter email@example.com.
Your server will either store the certificate request in a file or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (it will tell you which of these things it does). If it stored the request in a file, email the contents of that file to email@example.com. After your request is processed, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with directions on how to install the certificate. If you haven't received a response after three full business days since emailing your request, send a query to email@example.com.
