If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login info which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
We offer SSL certificates along with our website hosting packages, so if you wish to give protection to the information your visitors send, you can get one right from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you're able to enter the company/personal details which you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a special private key. You'll receive a message from our supplier in order to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not have to do anything at all manually as our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Needless to say, in case you wish to use a different SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have generated from your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you'd like to secure, you are able to get a new SSL with a few clicks. You will only have to type in the details for the certificate in case it's not the same as the one you have in the account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request along with the private key related to it. If you decide to purchase the SSL from our company, you only have to pick the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to install the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to get the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. After that you'll have to install the certificate, yet if you haven't done this before or you experience any kind of problems, you can get in touch with us and we will install the SSL in a matter of minutes.
