A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account acquired from our company and its customers send private data, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, which means that you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the 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 another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
