A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

Furthermore, we have an auto-installer instrument, so once you approve the order through e-mail, our system will set everything up for you and it will install your certificate, the CSR as well as the 2 private keys. Shortly after that, you'll be able to visit your site with https:// and any data submitted on it will be encrypted, so no unauthorized people can intercept it.
