If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as 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 about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside 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 an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
We provide SSL certificates in addition to our hosting packages, so if you would like to protect the data your visitors upload, you are able to obtain one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details which you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a special private key. You will receive an e-mail message from our supplier in order to confirm the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not have 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 wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated from your account.
