If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login info that users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

If you host a site in a shared web hosting account acquired through our company and its visitors upload private info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that 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 can acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You'll just need to enter the information for your certificate when it is different from the one you have inside your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to acquire the SSL through our company, you only have to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to set up the certificate manually. If you plan to acquire the SSL from some other company, you only need to save the CSR code. After that you'll need to set up the certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you have any kind of difficulties, you can get in touch with us and we will set up the SSL in a matter of minutes.
