In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
In case you host a website in a hosting account ordered through our company and its visitors submit private info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary information for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
