In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
As SSL certificates are among the services that we supply together with our shared hosting packages, you can receive an SSL for any website hosted in an account on our end with just a couple of clicks. In addition, we have an auto-installer instrument, so when you approve the order through email, our system will set everything up on your behalf and it'll install your certificate, the CSR and the two private keys. After that, you'll be able to visit your website with https:// and any details submitted on it will be encoded, which means that no unauthorized people can intercept it. If you've picked another SSL service provider, you can only generate a Certificate Signing Request in your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
