A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to have an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. 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, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

You'll receive an email message from our vendor in order to confirm the order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this function in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you won't have to do anything at all manually since our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that.
