A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud web hosting account ordered through our company and its users submit private data, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it straight through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
