If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that 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 an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

We offer SSL certificates in addition to our web hosting packages, so if you'd like to protect the data your visitors send, you can obtain one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you will be able to enter the company/personal details which you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR and a special private key. You will receive an email message from our vendor in order to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Certainly, in case you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created from your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you're able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You will only need to enter the details for your certificate when it's different from the one you have in the account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to buy the SSL from our company, you only need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. Should you plan to acquire the SSL from a different company, you just need to save the CSR code. Then you'll need to set up the certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any kind of problems, you'll be able to contact us and we will install the SSL within a couple of minutes.
