If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, 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 information related to the entity which 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 vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and review the contact info that you would like to be used for the certificate and then pick the auto-configuration attribute that we've introduced to make things easier - when you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through e-mail after you send your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any point.
