If you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment information that people send to be secure, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the info exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR features your web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed electronically using 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 once you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each and every vendor.

We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings.
