In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info which users upload, 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 encoded form, such as the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened 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 Web Hosting
If you host a site in a cloud web hosting account purchased through our company and its visitors send private data, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory information for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
