In case you offer goods and services on your website and you would like the payment information that customers submit to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you will need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a website in a shared web hosting account obtained from our company and its users upload private information, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you only need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish 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 are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
