A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to have an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a trusted 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 - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.

We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings.
