A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and account information that are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site 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 Web Hosting

In case you host a site in a cloud web hosting account purchased through our company and its customers send sensitive info, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
