If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or 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 website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up 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 info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you only have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory data for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve your 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.
