A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud web hosting account obtained from our company and its users submit private information, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, which means that you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed details for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
