If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting

If you host a site in a Linux website hosting plan with our company and you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and review the contact information that you want to be used for the certificate and then choose the auto-configuration attribute that we've introduced so that we can make things a lot less difficult - when you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive via e-mail after you post the order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any time. If you'd like to acquire your certificate elsewhere, you're able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to an alternative service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you create an e-store and / or you have some login form and your site is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud platform, you may want to use an SSL certificate. Because we offer SSLs along with our website hosting services, you can acquire your new certificate via the very same Hepsia Control Panel where you control your site content. All that you will need to do is to type in the required data - business and personal. As we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request as well as the Private Key, then monitor the SSL status with our vendor and set up everything for you. The sole action required by you is to accept the certificate order by electronic mail. If you already have some other vendor, you can only obtain a CSR and then submit it to them, so that they can give you an SSL that you can set up in your account here.
