If you offer services and products on your website and you'd like the payment information that users upload to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR features your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host a site in a shared hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors send private data, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you just need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required information 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 won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
