A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

If you host a site in a cloud web hosting account obtained through our company and its users send sensitive data, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from your hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, which means that you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory details 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 will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR through your Control Panel and 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.
