In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud hosting account purchased from our company and its customers upload private info, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from 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 select the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get 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.
