I’m really bad at all this SSL stuff, hence please excuse me if my question sounds silly.
My client requires a .crt and .key file from my hosting provider in order to be able to redirect from their domain to our domain. However the .crt file needs to be in the following specs:
- .crt file in PEM format for nginx/apache server
- SHA 256
- 2K length
Upon chatting with my hosting provider, they have given me a .csr and .key file and have said that I would have to convert it to .crt (PEM) myself as they do not have the tools to do it. Upon googling, I have found out that this .crt file needs to be generated by a valid CA.
Is this something that CloudFlare can do? if not can someone point me in the right direction please?
