In case you offer services and products on your site and you would like the payment data that users send to be secure, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but to get 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 features the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate your Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
