   7. Follow instructions that appear at the top of the next page.

 - SSL Certificate Signing request. It includes the details that you submitted on the previous step. Use this request to get an SSL certificate from Comodo.
 - SSL Server Private Key. This is the secret key to decrypt messages from your visitors. It must be stored in a secure place where it is inaccessible to others. Don't lose this key, you will need it if you get a permanent certificate.  
 - Temporary SSL Certificate. It validates your identity and confirms the public key to assure the visitors that they are communicating with your server, not any other party.

   8. Copy the signing request and private key for later use.
