A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and login details which are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required information for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings.

You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
