In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside 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 can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
Given that SSL certificates are some of the services which we supply together with our web hosting packages, you can obtain an SSL for any site hosted in an account on our end with a few clicks. What's more, we have an auto-installer instrument, so once you approve your order via email, our system will set everything up for you and it will install your certificate, the CSR and the two private keys. Soon after that, you'll be able to open your site with https:// and any details submitted on it will be secured, which means that no unauthorized people will be able to intercept it. If you have selected some other SSL vendor, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request inside your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
