A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a dependable issuer. During 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 as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host a website in a cloud hosting account acquired from our company and its customers upload sensitive information, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel 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 same section.
