A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and account info which are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your 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 website in a shared website hosting account ordered through our company and its customers submit sensitive information, you will be able to acquire 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, so you just need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
