In case you offer services and goods on your website and you would like the payment info that customers upload to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains your web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each and every vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

If you host a website in a web hosting account purchased from our company and its visitors send private info, you'll be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you just have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory details for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR using your Control Panel and 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 very same section.
