If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along 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 information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host a website in a cloud website hosting account ordered from our company and its visitors send private info, you can get an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you just need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the needed information for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia web 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'll be able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll need to type in the details for your certificate if it's different from the one you already have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it. If you decide to buy the SSL through us, you just have to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. If you wish to get the SSL from some other company, you only need to save the CSR code. Subsequently you will have to set up your certificate, however if you have never done this before or you experience any troubles, you can contact us and we'll set up the SSL in a few minutes.
