A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a site in a shared website hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors upload private data, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you only have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the required info for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will 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 acquire a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
