what is that

Answer #1

Hi Gunnar,

A CSR is a Certificate Signing Request. It is an encrypted file that contains the information for your website – the domain name, the owner, location, and various information. This is used to generate the actual certificate, which secures your site.

The key is generated along with the CSR, and is used in the encryption/decryption process. You can learn more about this at
