What is a CSR?

A crucial component in the SSL activation process is crafting the សំណើចុះហត្ថលេខាលើវិញ្ញាបនបត្រ (CSR). At 1Byte, we value this code as a specific and indispensable element.

The CSR, or Certificate Signing Request, is essentially a digital ID card for your website. It encapsulates pertinent details about your site’s name and your company’s contact information. This code holds the key to the realm of SSL security.

For optimal security measures, we recommend generating this code on your hosting server. It’s not just a suggestion; on many servers, it’s a non-negotiable condition. Why? Because the hosting server is the optimal birthplace for your CSR code.
