If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your website, 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 information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
We offer SSL certificates together with our shared web hosting plans, so if you would like to protect the data your visitors send, you'll be able to get one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details which you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a specific private key. You will receive an email message from our supplier to confirm the order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything at all manually because our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, if you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request plus a Private Key for any site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account with us through the SSL generator tool that is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You only have to type in the SSL contact and admin information then the two codes will be generated and available in your account all of the time even if you don't save them directly. As we supply SSL certificates, you're able to obtain one via us and during the CSR generation you can take advantage of the auto-configuration option that we provide, and then proceed with your order. In this way, you will not have to deal with anything else afterwards as our system will install the SSL for you when it is issued. To use some other certificate vendor, you need to save the CSR and send it to them, and then install the SSL that they will give you. Our tech support is at your service 24/7 in case you have any difficulties with that.
