If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

In case you host a website in a Linux web hosting from our company and you'd like to get an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact info that you would like to be used for your certificate and after that select the auto-configuration attribute that we've released in order to make things even easier - when you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via electronic mail after you post the order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any time. If you wish to obtain your certificate elsewhere, you can use our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other vendor. A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
