If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login info which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different 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 which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
In case you host a website in a Linux website hosting from us and you'd like to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and update the contact information that you would like to be used for the certificate and then choose the auto-configuration option that we have created in order to make things even easier - once you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive through electronic mail after you send your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any time. If you wish to get a certificate somewhere else, you will be able to employ our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to another service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is provided 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'll be able to order a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll just need to enter the information for your certificate if it's different from the one you have inside the account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request and the private key associated with it. If you decide to buy the SSL through our company, you only have to pick the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to install the certificate manually. Should you prefer to acquire the SSL from a different company, you only have to save the CSR code. After that you'll have to set up your certificate, yet if you've never done this before or you experience any kind of troubles, you can contact us and we'll install the SSL within a few minutes.
