If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a site in a shared web hosting account acquired from our company and its customers upload private info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the needed information for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you will be able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll have to type in the info for the certificate if it is different from the one you already have in the account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to obtain the SSL from us, you only need to pick the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. In case you want to acquire the SSL from another company, you just need to save the CSR code. After that you'll have to install the certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL in a matter of minutes.
