In case you need 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, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for 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 needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

With our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details which you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR as well as a special private key. You will receive an e-mail message from our supplier in order to confirm the order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you won't need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, if you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created from your account.
