A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to have an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account ordered through our company and its customers upload sensitive data, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you just have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the required data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get 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.
