In case you offer goods and services on your site and you would like the payment details that clients send to be protected, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR features the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you'll need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate your Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
If you host a site in a website hosting account ordered from our company and its users submit private data, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory 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 need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from 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.
