If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login info that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.

Furthermore, we have an auto-installer instrument, so when you approve your order using electronic mail, our system will set everything up for you and it'll install the certificate, the CSR plus the two private keys. Soon after that, you will be able to open your website with https:// and any info submitted on it will be encrypted, which means that no unauthorized people will be able to intercept it.
