In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance 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 based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
We provide SSL certificates together with our hosting
plans, so if you would like to protect the data your visitors send, you're able to obtain one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a specific private key. You will get an e-mail message from our supplier to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this function in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not need to do anything at all manually since our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, if you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have generated through your account.
