If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a website in a cloud website hosting account acquired through our company and its customers send private data, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
