If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
Given that SSL certificates are some of the services which we supply together with our shared hosting plans, you can get an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with several clicks. What is more, we have an auto-installer tool, so when you approve the order through e-mail, our system will set everything up for you and it will install the certificate, the CSR as well as the two private keys. Shortly after that, you'll be able to open your website with https:// and any details submitted on it will be protected, so no unauthorized people can intercept it. When you've picked some other SSL vendor, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request in your account on our end together with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
