In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
We provide SSL certificates together with our shared hosting
packages, so if you'd like to provide protection to the details your visitors send, you're able to get one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a special private key. You'll get a message from our vendor in order to confirm your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not have to do anything at all manually as our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Certainly, should you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server
accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you would like to secure, you're able to order a new SSL with several clicks. You'll just need to type in the information for the certificate when it's not the same as the one you already have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to acquire the SSL from our company, you only have to pick the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you will not have to set up the certificate manually. Should you plan to get the SSL from another company, you just have to save the CSR code. After that you will need to install the certificate, however if you haven't done this before or you experience any difficulties, you'll be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL within a couple of minutes.
