If you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment data that customers send to be protected, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes 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 after you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.

What is more, we have an auto-installer tool, so after you approve the order using e-mail, our system will set everything up on your behalf and it'll install your certificate, the CSR as well as the two private keys. After that, you will be able to visit your website with https:// and any data submitted on it will be protected, therefore no unauthorized people can intercept it. When you've chosen a different SSL vendor, you can only create a Certificate Signing Request inside your account on our end together with the unique private key, then save the CSR code and submit it to the other vendor.
