A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login info which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a reliable 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 four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your 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 Web Hosting
If you host a website in a cloud web hosting
account obtained through our company and its customers send sensitive information, you can get an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory details for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
