If you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment data that customers upload to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each and every vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
As SSL certificates are some of the services which we provide together with our web hosting plans, you're able to get an SSL for any site hosted in an account on our end with only a few clicks. What's more, we have an auto-installer instrument, so once you approve the order via email, our system will set everything up for you and it will install your certificate, the CSR and the 2 private keys. Soon after that, you will be able to open your site with https:// and any details submitted on it will be protected, which means that no unauthorized people will be able to intercept it. If you have chosen another SSL vendor, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request in your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other service provider.
