In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different 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 that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a site in a shared hosting
account obtained through our company and its visitors send private info, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
