In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
Given that SSL certificates are some of the services that we provide together with our cloud website hosting packages, you will be able to receive an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with just a few clicks. In addition, we have an auto-installer instrument, so after you approve your order via email, our system will set everything up for you and it'll install your certificate, the CSR plus the 2 private keys. Shortly after that, you will be able to open your website with https:// and any data submitted on it will be secured, which means that no unauthorized people will be able to intercept it. If you've chosen another SSL service provider, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request within your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
