In case you offer products and services on your site and you would like the payment information that clients submit to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the data exchanged between a user and a server, but to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR features your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate that is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you will need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
