In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login information that users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
Given that SSL certificates are some of the services which we supply along with our website hosting packages, you can receive an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with only a few clicks. What's more, we have an auto-installer tool, so after you approve your order using e-mail, our system will set everything up for you and it will install your certificate, the CSR and the two private keys. After that, you'll be able to load your website with https:// and any data submitted on it will be protected, which means that no unauthorized people can intercept it. In case you have chosen another SSL vendor, you can only generate a Certificate Signing Request in your account on our end together with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
