A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and login info which are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
In case you host a website in a hosting account purchased from our company and its users upload private info, you can get an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you only have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the needed data for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
