A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

In case you host a website in a shared website hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors send sensitive info, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, which means that you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings.
