A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login info that are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a reliable issuer. During 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. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a site in a cloud web hosting account ordered through our company and its customers submit sensitive info, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required details 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 won't need 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 and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
