If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login information which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a Linux shared package with our company and you would like to get an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and update the contact info that you wish to be used for your certificate and after that select the auto-configuration attribute that we have developed so that we can make things easier - when you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive via e-mail after you submit your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to get a certificate somewhere else, you're able to use our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to the other vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia 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 will be able to obtain a new SSL with several clicks. You will just need to type in the details for the certificate in case it's not the same as the one you have inside your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to purchase the SSL from us, you only need to select the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you want to acquire the SSL from a different company, you just have to save the CSR code. Afterwards you will need to set up your certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you experience any kind of problems, you will be able to contact us and we'll install the SSL within a couple of minutes.
