In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data that users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud hosting
account purchased from our company and its users submit sensitive info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed details 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 installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
