A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud website hosting account obtained from our company and its users submit private information, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed details for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
