In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
As SSL certificates are some of the services that we offer together with our web hosting packages, you'll be able to receive an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with only a few clicks. In addition, we have an auto-installer instrument, so after you approve your order via electronic mail, our system will set everything up on your behalf and it will install your certificate, the CSR and the two private keys. Shortly after that, you'll be able to open your site with https:// and any information submitted on it will be encoded, which means that no unauthorized people can intercept it. If you have picked some other SSL service provider, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request in your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other service provider.
