If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
If you host a website in a hosting plan from us and you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and update the contact information that you would like to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration function that we have introduced to make things even easier - as soon as you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive via email after you submit your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you won't have to do anything manually at any point. If you'd like to receive a certificate somewhere else, you are able to use our CSR generation tool 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 very same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you would like to secure, you're able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You will only have to type in the info for your certificate if it's different from the one you already have inside the account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you just need to pick the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the needed, so you will not have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to obtain the SSL from a different company, you just have to save the CSR code. Then you'll need to set up the certificate, but if you've never done this before or you have any kind of difficulties, you'll be able to get in touch with us and we will install the SSL in a few minutes.
