If you offer goods and services on your website and you'd like the payment data that customers send to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR includes the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each and every vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

If you host a site in a shared web hosting plan with our company and you need to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and update the contact info that you wish to be used for your certificate and then pick the auto-configuration feature that we've released in order to make things easier - when you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive through e-mail after you send the order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you want to receive your certificate elsewhere, you are able to use our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you wish to secure, you are able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll need to enter 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 acquire the SSL from our company, you just have to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. If you want to get the SSL from a different company, you only have to save the CSR code. Afterwards you'll have to set up your certificate, yet if you've never done this before or you have any kind of troubles, you can contact us and we'll set up the SSL in a matter of minutes.
