In case you offer services and goods on your site and you'd like the payment information that users submit to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR features the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a site in a shared hosting account ordered from our company and its visitors upload private info, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
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 site that you want to secure, you'll be able to get a new SSL with a few clicks. You will just need to enter the info for the certificate when it's different from the one you already have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request and the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL through us, you only have to pick the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to install the certificate manually. If you wish to obtain the SSL from another company, you only have to save the CSR code. Then you will need to set up your certificate, however if you have never done this before or you have any kind of issues, you will be able to get in touch with us and we'll set up the SSL within a few minutes.
