In case you offer services and products on your site and you would like the payment details that people send to be risk-free, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a server, but to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each and every vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a site in a shared website hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors upload private data, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
