A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and login information that are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

What's more, we have an auto-installer tool, so once you approve your order via electronic mail, our system will set everything up for you and it will install the certificate, the CSR and the 2 private keys.
