In case you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login info which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud hosting account obtained from our company and its users upload sensitive data, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary info for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
