A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues 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 set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host a website in a shared hosting account obtained from our company and its users send sensitive info, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, which means that you only need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the required details for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll 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 another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR using 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.
