If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login information that users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website 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 submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website 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 an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

If you host a site in a web hosting account acquired through our company and its users upload sensitive data, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the required details for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR using 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 same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you can order a new SSL with a few clicks. You will just need to type in the details for the certificate in case it is 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 purchase the SSL through us, you just have to choose the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you won't need to install the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to acquire the SSL from some other company, you just need to save the CSR code. Then you will have to install your certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any problems, you will be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL within a few minutes.
