If you offer services and goods on your website and you'd like the payment info that customers submit to be protected, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR includes your website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate as well as a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
