If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment info that people send to be secure, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but to acquire an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you will need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host a website in a Linux shared hosting plan from our company and you'd like to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you are able to do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact info that you wish to be used for the certificate and then choose the auto-configuration function that we have introduced to make things even easier - when you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via email after you send the order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't need to do anything manually at any point. If you wish to acquire your certificate elsewhere, you are able to use our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to another service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the very same section of your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website 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 wish to secure, you're able to get a new SSL with several clicks. You'll just need to enter the information for the certificate in case it is not the same as the one you already have in your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request along with the private key associated with it. If you decide to buy the SSL from our company, you just have to pick the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to install the certificate manually. In case you prefer to obtain the SSL from some other company, you just have to save the CSR code. Subsequently you'll need to install your certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you have any kind of troubles, you will be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL within a matter of minutes.
