If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up 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. A site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
In case you host a site in a hosting account purchased through our company and its users submit sensitive info, you can get an SSL certificate for it directly from your hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you only need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You shall find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can generate a new Certificate Signing Request along with a Private Key for any site that you host in a semi-dedicated server account with us by using the SSL generator tool that's available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You just have to type in the SSL contact and administrative information and the two codes will be generated and available in your account all of the time even if you don't save them right away. Since we provide SSL certificates, you'll be able to acquire one from our company and during the CSR generation you can employ the auto-configuration option that we provide, and then proceed with your order. In this way, you won't need to deal with anything else afterwards because our system will install the SSL for you when it is issued. To use a different certificate vendor, you should save the CSR and give it to them, then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our technical support is online 24/7 in case you have any difficulties with the latter.
