If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be opened 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 Hosting
We offer SSL certificates together with our shared hosting plans, so if you'd like to protect the details your visitors submit, you will be able to obtain one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a unique private key. You'll get an email message from our vendor in order to verify your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this function 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 necessary and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Needless to say, in case you prefer to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created from your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you launch an electronic shop and you have some login form and your site is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud platform, you might want to use an SSL certificate. Since we supply SSLs together with our website hosting services, you can order your new certificate via the very same Hepsia Control Panel where you manage your content. All that you will have to do is to submit the necessary data - business and personal. Since we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request and the Private Key, then monitor the SSL status with our vendor and set up everything for you. The only action required on your end is to approve the certificate order through electronic mail. In case you already have another vendor, you can only get a CSR and then send it to them, so they can give you an SSL that you'll be able to install inside your account with us.
