In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up 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 accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud hosting account acquired from our company and its customers upload sensitive info, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed information for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
