If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login data that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which 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 from an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

We provide SSL certificates along with our cloud hosting plans, so if you'd like to give protection to the details your visitors submit, you will be able to get one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you will be able to enter the company/personal details which you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR as well as a unique private key. You will receive an e-mail message from our vendor in order to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually since our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, in case you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have generated using your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you wish to secure, you'll be able to order a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll need to enter the information for the certificate when it's not the same as the one you already have inside your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you only need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you plan to acquire the SSL from another company, you just have to save the CSR code. Then you'll need to set up the certificate, however if you haven't done this before or you have any kind of issues, you can get in touch with us and we'll set up the SSL in a few minutes.
