A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login information which are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a shared hosting account purchased from our company and its customers upload sensitive information, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required data 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 need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
