If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment data that customers submit to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to get an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each and every vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors submit sensitive info, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you only need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required info for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
