A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you just have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings.
