If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment data that customers send to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR features your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account obtained from our company and its customers upload private data, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you only need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the needed data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of some other 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 find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
