In case you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment info that customers upload to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate that is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
