I need to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) on my Microsoft Azure website in order to get an SSL certificate. I'm attempting to follow this tutorial.

Step 1.1 says,

On your Windows server, download and save the DigiCert® Certificate Utility for Windows executable (DigiCertUtil.exe).

How do I access Windows server on my Azure website in order to download and save the utility?

1 Answer 1


For an Azure website not running in a VPS, you just need to supply a .pfx file (this step of the tutorial).

You can use the Utility running on any Windows machine (including your local workstation) to create the .pfx file as described in the tutorial.
