If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.

Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and update the contact information that you wish to be used for your certificate after which pick the auto-configuration function that we've introduced to make things even easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through electronic mail after you submit your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any point. If you wish to get your certificate elsewhere, you are able to employ our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other vendor. A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
