In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that 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 has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
In case you host a website in a hosting
account ordered through our company and its users send private info, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you only have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will 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 intend to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server
accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you wish to secure, you are able to order a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll need to type in the info for the certificate when it's not the same as the one you 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 through us, you only have to pick the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In case you wish to acquire the SSL from a different company, you only have to save the CSR code. Afterwards you will need to set up your certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you have any kind of difficulties, you will be able to contact us and we will set up the SSL in a few minutes.
