If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting

We provide SSL certificates in addition to our hosting plans, so if you would like to give protection to the info your visitors upload, you can obtain one right from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you'll be able to type in the company/personal details which you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a specific private key. You'll get a message from our supplier to verify your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything manually because our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Certainly, should you prefer to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated through your account.
