In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login info which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host a website in a cloud hosting account ordered through our company and its customers submit private info, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight through your website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required details 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 need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
