Certificate Signing Request (CSR)




A Certificate Signing Request or CSR, is a block of encrypted text that is generated by a server which you intend to install an SSL certificate. The CSR is submitted to the Certificate Authority or CA at the time of purchasing an SSL certificate. The CSR contains information that will be included in your SSL certificate such as your domain name (common name), organization name, locality, and country.
