If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users send, you will 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 encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.

With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you can enter and view the contact information that you want to be used for your certificate and then select the auto-configuration option that we have introduced in order to make things a lot less difficult - when you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through e-mail after you post your order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not have to do anything manually at any point.
