A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
If you host a website in a cloud hosting account purchased from our company and its users upload private data, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
