In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, 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 information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
If you host a site in a cloud hosting account ordered through our company and its customers send private data, you'll be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you only have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the required data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve your 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 wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR using your Control Panel 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 very same section.
