In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance 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 data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 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 which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud web hosting account purchased from our company and its visitors submit sensitive data, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary information for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
