In case you offer goods and services on your site and you'd like the payment details that customers upload to be secure, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate that is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate your Request, the actual certificate along with a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a website in a shared website hosting account obtained from our company and its users submit sensitive data, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary details for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and shortly 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 acquire a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
