A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of 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 as well as the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud website hosting account obtained from our company and its users upload sensitive info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you only need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory data for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
