A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a shared hosting account acquired from our company and its visitors send sensitive data, you'll be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it straight through your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed data for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve the order and shortly 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 you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
