A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

If you host a website in a web hosting account acquired through our company and its visitors upload sensitive info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory information for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your 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 if you plan to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
