In case you offer products and services on your site and you'd like the payment details that customers submit to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you will need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
