A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host a site in a cloud hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors send private data, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get 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.
