A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
In case you host a site in a hosting account purchased through our company and its customers send private information, you'll be able to get 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 have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
