In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site 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 through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting
account obtained through our company and its customers upload sensitive info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you just need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary information for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
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 would like to secure, you will be able to order a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll just need to type in the information for the certificate in case it is not the same as the one you have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request and the private key related to it. If you decide to buy the SSL from us, you just have to select the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to install the certificate manually. If you plan to obtain the SSL from a different company, you only need to save the CSR code. Afterwards you'll need to set up your certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you experience any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we will install the SSL within a matter of minutes.
