If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a website in a Linux cloud website hosting package with our company and you'd like to get an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and review the contact information that you would like to be used for the certificate and after that pick the auto-configuration attribute that we've released in order to make things easier - once you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through electronic mail after you submit the order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not have to do anything manually at any point. If you'd like to receive a certificate somewhere else, you will be able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and send the Request code to another service provider. A private key connected with the CSR will also be generated and available in the very same section of your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you would like to secure, you're able to get a new SSL with several clicks. You will just need to type in the details for the certificate if it's not the same as the one you have inside your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to obtain the SSL from our company, you just have to choose the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually.
