In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance 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 information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed 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 Website Hosting
If you host a site in a website hosting account acquired through our company and its customers send sensitive info, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will 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 generate a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you want to secure, you are able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You'll need to type in the details for the certificate in case it's not the same as the one you already have inside the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request and the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL from our company, you just need to choose 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 plan to obtain the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. Then you'll need to install your 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'll set up the SSL within a couple of minutes.
