If you offer services and products on your website and you'd like the payment details that users send to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR features the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each and every vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a site in a shared website hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors upload sensitive information, you'll be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it straight through your hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed 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 won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
