A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a website in a shared website hosting account purchased from our company and its customers send private information, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it straight from your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR using your Control Panel and 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.
