A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact information that you want to be used for the certificate after which choose the auto-configuration feature that we've released to make things a lot less difficult - when you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive via email after you post the order, our system will set up everything for you, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any time. If you'd like to receive your certificate somewhere else, you'll be able to employ our CSR generation instrument and submit the Request code to another vendor.
