In order to integrate an SSL certificate you must have domain registration and hosting service with that domain. The hosting company will provide a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) which is a key used by the SSL provider (signing authority) to create the certificate. Once the certificate has been prepared, you can install the SSL certificate via your webhost, typically through a manager or control panel. In some cases, the certificate may need to be installed or the CSR generated more manually by interacting directly with the server.
