A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. 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 trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.

We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for the Certificate Signing Request.
