In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
Since SSL certificates are some of the services which we provide along with our hosting plans, you can obtain an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with several clicks. In addition, we have an auto-installer instrument, so as soon as you approve your order via e-mail, our system will set everything up on your behalf and it'll install the certificate, the CSR and the two private keys. Soon after that, you'll be able to open your website with https:// and any information submitted on it will be protected, which means that no unauthorized people can intercept it. In case you've picked some other SSL service provider, you can only generate a Certificate Signing Request within your account on our end together with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
