    Digital certificates for websites can send website visitors a request for a signature. Such requests are stored in a CSR file. Certification authorities use CSR files in order to obtain a document certifying the identity of websites that require a certificate. CSR files are generated by the server that hosts the certificate itself. While your private key is stored in an inaccessible location, the public key is available in the CSR file, which allows the CA to generate an SSL certificate.

    CSR files help identify the issuer of the website certificate. They contain encrypted text. The encrypted data includes various information about the customer – country, email and domain, organization name and public key. The CSR file works as follows: The public key is included in the file. The corresponding private key must be provided by the user (signing) to verify the certificate.

    The CSR code created to provide SSL certificate usage is created on the web server side and the code containing the data of the website is called CSR. CSR (Certificate Signing Request) contains the data of the server and website created by Web hosting, which you will use in its content.

    After purchasing an SSL certificate and enabling SSL credit, you may need to create a certificate signing request (CSR) for the website’s domain (or “known name”) to request an SSL certificate. It is a code that is required for the creation of the SSL certificate.

    While creating the SSL certificate, the data of your website is automatically detected with the help of the CSR code and an SSL certificate is created according to the data you write while creating the CSR code. To upload an SSL certificate to your website, you must first create a CSR code.
