    1414 * The certificate signing request is the non-confidential file generated based on your private key that you submit to a certificate authority

    16 Then, you will need to submit your certificate signing request to a certificate authority, such as [http://rapidssl.com RapidSSL] or [http://cacert.org cacert]. RapidSSL costs $79 per certificate and can generate a certificate for you that will be accepted by nearly all browsers on the planet. cacert will generate a certificate for free but users will need to import the cacert root certificate or they will get errors. We have a [ticket:1706 raging debate] about which approach is the best to take.

    1818In these examples domain.csr and domain.key are the file names provided.
