If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud hosting account purchased from our company and its users send sensitive info, you can get an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
