Steps necessary to create & purchase a a .PFX certificate file for Microsoft Azure Active Directory Connect

Please provide me with the steps necessary to create & purchase a .PFX certificate file for Microsoft Azure Active Directory Connect.

How can this certificate request be created and what type of certificate needs to be purchased from a public certification company such as Go Daddy?

I would prefer to use Go Daddy to purchase this certificate from and need the exact steps on how to complete this entire process.

Clicking on the Learn about SSL certificates and PFX files link takes you to the SSL Certificate Requirements section of this webpage (click the Link to visit this page).

If you are looking for adfs certs, u can skip this section from azure ad connect and build adfs separately
Adfs would need cert with single hostname as adfs service name
U will get lots of blogs articles to install adfs along with certs
