A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
Since SSL certificates are some of the services which we supply along with our hosting plans, you'll be able to obtain an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with several clicks. What's more, we have an auto-installer tool, so as soon as you approve the order using e-mail, our system will set everything up for you and it will install the certificate, the CSR and the two private keys. Soon after that, you will be able to open your site with https:// and any details submitted on it will be secured, therefore no unauthorized people can intercept it. When you have chosen another SSL service provider, you can only generate a Certificate Signing Request inside your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
