As part of the SSL Certificate purchasing process, you will need to provide a CSR (certificate signing request). A CSR is a public key that you generate on the server that hosts your website. It is used to valdiate specific information about your web server and your organization or business.
If you host your website with Winhost, you can generate the CSR through our control panel. At other web hosting providers, you may need to request the CSR from their support staff.
