In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login data that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting

If you host a website in a Linux hosting service with us and you wish to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact info that you would like to be used for your certificate and then pick the auto-configuration function that we have released so that we can make things easier - when you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive via email after you send your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you will not have to do anything manually at any time. If you want to acquire your certificate somewhere else, you will be able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and send the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you're able to obtain a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will only need to enter the details for your certificate when it's not the same as the one you already have inside the account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key related to it. If you decide to buy the SSL from our company, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the needed, so you won't need to set up the certificate manually. In case you plan to acquire the SSL from a different company, you only have to save the CSR code. Afterwards you'll need to set up your certificate, however if you have never done this before or you have any kind of troubles, you can get in touch with us and we'll install the SSL in a few minutes.
