A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.

With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a specific private key. You'll get a message from our vendor to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you won't need to do anything manually since our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that.
