In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login info that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
In case you host a site in a web hosting account purchased through our company and its visitors submit sensitive information, you can get an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.

Since we have an auto-installer, our system will create the Certificate Signing Request as well as the Private Key, then keep track of the SSL status with our vendor and install everything for you.
