If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

Since SSL certificates are some of the services that we supply together with our cloud website hosting plans, you'll be able to obtain an SSL for any site hosted in an account here with just a few clicks. What is more, we have an auto-installer instrument, so after you approve the order through email, our system will set everything up for you and it will install the certificate, the CSR plus the 2 private keys. After that, you'll be able to load your site with https:// and any details submitted on it will be encoded, which means that no unauthorized people can intercept it. In case you've selected some other SSL service provider, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request inside your account on our end along with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
