In case you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment data that clients upload to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR features your website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and authorizes the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that 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 created when you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
