A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login details that are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud hosting account acquired from our company and its customers submit sensitive information, you can get an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve your 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 wish to use the services of another 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'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
