If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website 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 special private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
As SSL certificates are some of the services which we provide together with our cloud hosting packages, you can acquire an SSL for any site hosted in an account on our end with just a few clicks. What's more, we have an auto-installer instrument, so after you approve your order using e-mail, our system will set everything up for you and it'll install the certificate, the CSR plus the two private keys. Shortly after that, you will be able to open your website with https:// and any details submitted on it will be encrypted, which means that no unauthorized people will be able to intercept it. When you've picked a different SSL vendor, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request within your account on our end together with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other service provider.
