A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to have an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory information for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings.
