If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a shared hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors submit private data, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required information for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
