Sometimes ago, Google introduced a condition that all websites must fulfil in order to rank on websites. They are to have SSL installed on their websites. They are to install SSL certificates also known as https on their websites.
Most Bloggers and website owners, do not really know how to go about installing SSL Certificates on websites. Let us look at how that can be done on websites. Follow me as we are going to look at that in this article.
The secure Socket Layer is a security protocol that defines a set of standards for encrypting communication between a server and a client. When it comes to encrypted connections, SSL certificates are used to secure connections that are being sent over a network. It will ensure that data sent through and to customers are secured.
The SSL certificate is used to protect the confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of sensitive information in an online financial transaction.
Now the steps…

CSR happens to be an encrypted body of text. It includes encoded data related to your business and its domain name. This are information about some data that are related to your website.
This information includes common name, organization, unit, and serial number, among others, which are included in a CSR for a domain.
