If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, so as to protect the payment and login information that users post, 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, such as the exact web 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 submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting

We offer SSL certificates along with our website hosting packages, so if you wish to give protection to the details your visitors submit, you can get one right from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR as well as a specific private key. You'll receive an e-mail from our vendor in order to confirm the order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything manually because our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Of course, in case you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated using your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you wish to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will just need to enter the details for your certificate in case it's different from the one you already have in your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL from our company, you only need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't need to install the certificate manually. Should you prefer to get the SSL from another company, you only have to save the CSR code. Subsequently you'll have to set up your certificate, but if you have never done this before or you experience any kind of problems, you'll be able to get in touch with us and we will set up the SSL within a few minutes.
