In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login information which users submit, 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 encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
In case you host a site in a web hosting account acquired from our company and its customers upload private data, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
