In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud web hosting account purchased through our company and its visitors submit private information, you can get an SSL certificate for it straight from your website hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory data for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend 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 have to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
