In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data which users send, you will 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 website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting
account ordered through our company and its customers submit sensitive data, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, which means that you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed information for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need 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 Servers
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server
accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you'd like to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You'll have to type in the details for the certificate in case it's different from the one you have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request in addition to the private key associated with it. If you decide to purchase the SSL through us, you just have to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to install the certificate manually. In case you prefer to get the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. Afterwards you'll have to install your certificate, but if you have never done this before or you have any problems, you can contact us and we will set up the SSL within a couple of minutes.
