A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify 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 of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a shared hosting account purchased through our company and its users send private data, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory data for the 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 won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR through your Control Panel and 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.
