If you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment details that customers upload to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the data exchanged between a user and a server, but to acquire an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate that is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
