The SSL word is English and the shortening is defined as Secure Sockets Layer. An SSL certificate is a process in which the server sends encrypted data that is sent during recipient communication.
The most common use is to encrypt data between the server and the web browser during data exchange on the internet site. The SSL certificate consists of a standard algorithm.
Many websites use SSL to provide secure data streaming. The SSL operation requires a server-side key and a certificate to act on the recipient side in order to work.
How Does SSL Work?
SSL is based on a coding method with the use of keys defined as Public Key / Private Key.
There are two keys for SSL encryption. These keys are software that is digitally encoded. We can only open the data that a key is encrypted with the other key. After you create your keys (SSL by default, you do not need to do anything), the private key remains in the keys. If it is the other public key, the connection will be sent to the person you are connecting to.
The person who will send you data from the outside will send the data to you safely using the public key. Even if the data is reached during data communication without reaching you, you need a private key to unlock it. According to SSL Certificates, 40 bit or 128 bit encryption is used. The decoding of this kind of cipher will take a lot of time even with advanced technologies.
In summary, the SSL Certificate ensures that computers exchanging data do not interfere with the data sent by a third party, allowing data to be transferred securely between computers that exchange data only.

What to note when creating the CSR code:
The first step in setting up an SSL certificate is to create a CSR code. Creating Csr code varies according to the web hosting management program used on the server side.
If you are hosting your internet site on an Internet Service Provider - Hosting company, this hosting company will provide you with the CSR code required to set up the SSL certificate.
When creating a CSR Code, the following precautions should be taken into consideration
a) The information you provide for the Csr code should not contain any of the characters below
! @ # $ % ^ * ( ) ~ ? > < & / \
b) The Common Name information must be the same as the domain you want to define ssl. If you have requested your CSR code as domainname.com, then mail. You can not create a domainname.com certificate or mail your request. You can not use your ssl certificate at alanadi.com under domainname.com.
