A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize 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. Next, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your 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 wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
