If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you launch an e-store or you have some login form and your site is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud hosting platform, you might want to use an SSL certificate. Since we provide SSLs in addition to our web hosting services, you're able to order your new certificate via the very same Hepsia Control Panel where you manage your content. All you'll need to do is to type in the required info - business and personal. As we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request as well as the Private Key, then keep track of the SSL status with our vendor and install everything for you. The only action required by you is to confirm the certificate order by electronic mail. In case you already have a different service provider, you can only create a CSR and then submit it to them, so they can issue an SSL which you'll be able to set up in your account with us.
