If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host a site in a shared hosting account purchased through our company and its users send private info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight through your hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia website 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 can order a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll have to enter the details for the certificate when it's not the same as the one you have in the account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. In case you plan to acquire the SSL from a different company, you just have to save the CSR code. Then you'll have to set up your certificate, but if you have never done this before or you experience any kind of issues, you'll be able to contact us and we will install the SSL in a matter of minutes.
