A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout 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 along with the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a website in a cloud web hosting
account purchased from our company and its users send private data, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, which means that you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary information for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and soon 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 another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
