A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you just have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
