If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host a site in a shared hosting account ordered from our company and its visitors submit private information, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
