If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which 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 should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of 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 Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a website in a cloud web hosting from our company and you'd like to get an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you can enter and view the contact info that you'd like to be used for the certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration attribute that we have created in order to make things easier - as soon as you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through electronic mail after you post the 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 acquire a certificate elsewhere, you will be able to employ our CSR generation tool and send the Request code to an alternative service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you wish to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll have to enter the information for your certificate when it is different from the one you have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request in addition to the private key associated with it. If you decide to buy the SSL from our company, you just have to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to install the certificate manually. If you prefer to acquire the SSL from a different company, you only have to save the CSR code. After that you'll need to install your certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any problems, you'll be able to contact us and we will set up the SSL in a few minutes.
