In case you offer services and goods on your site and you'd like the payment info that people upload to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
If you host a website in a website hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors submit sensitive information, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from 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.
