In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our shared web hosting packages, so if you'd like to give protection to the data your visitors upload, you are able to obtain one right from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you'll be able to enter the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR and a special private key. You will get an email from our supplier in order to confirm your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, in case you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you would like to secure, you are able to order a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll need to type in the details for the certificate in case it is not the same as the one you already have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to obtain the SSL from our company, you only have to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you wish to get the SSL from a different company, you just have to save the CSR code. After that you will have to install the certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any troubles, you'll be able to contact us and we will set up the SSL within a few minutes.
