A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host a site in a shared website hosting
account obtained from our company and its visitors submit private info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you just need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the 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 through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
