In case you offer goods and services on your website and you would like the payment data that clients submit to be secure, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you will need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each and every vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud web hosting account acquired from our company and its users submit sensitive information, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required information for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
