In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login info which users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
We provide SSL certificates along with our shared web hosting packages, so if you would like to provide protection to the details your visitors upload, 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 which you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a unique private key. You'll receive an e-mail from our vendor to verify your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't have to do anything at all manually since our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Needless to say, should you prefer to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you want to secure, you can obtain a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll just have to type in the info for your certificate in case it's not the same as the one you already have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request and the private key associated with it. If you decide to acquire the SSL through our company, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't need to install the certificate manually. Should you plan to get the SSL from a different company, you only need to save the CSR code. Afterwards you will need to install the certificate, yet if you've never done this before or you have any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL in a couple of minutes.
