If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside 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 information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host a website in a cloud web hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors submit private info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed 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 from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you'd like to secure, you're able to get a new SSL with a few clicks. You will only need to type in the info for your certificate in case it is different from the one you already have in the account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request and the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you only have to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the needed, so you won't need to set up the certificate manually. If you prefer to obtain the SSL from another company, you only have to save the CSR code. Then you'll have to set up the certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any kind of troubles, you'll be able to contact us and we'll install the SSL in a matter of minutes.
