In case you offer products and services on your site and you would like the payment data that people submit to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains your website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
