A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account information which are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account ordered from our company and its users upload private information, you'll be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it straight from your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you just need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the needed details for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
