In case you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of 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, therefore you only have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory details for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings.
