A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host a website in a shared hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors send sensitive info, you can 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-operate order wizard, thus you only have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required information for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
