In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory info for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings.
