In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login information which users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting

In case you host a site in a website hosting account acquired through our company and its users upload sensitive information, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you only need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required details for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
