In case you offer products and services on your site and you'd like the payment info that people submit to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to receive an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you will need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
In case you host a site in a website hosting account ordered through our company and its visitors upload private info, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required details for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
