If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login info which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded 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 information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host a site in a shared website hosting account ordered through our company and its visitors send private information, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it straight from your hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you only have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you would like to secure, you are able to order a new SSL with a few clicks. You will only need to type in the info for the certificate in case it is different from the one you have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to acquire the SSL from our company, you just need to pick the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to install the certificate manually. Should you wish to acquire the SSL from another company, you only need to save the CSR code. Afterwards you will need to set up the certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you have any kind of difficulties, you'll be able to get in touch with us and we will set up the SSL in a few minutes.
