If you offer products and services on your site and you'd like the payment info that people submit to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of your web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
We offer SSL certificates along with our cloud web hosting plans, so if you'd like to provide protection to the details your visitors upload, you can get one right from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details which you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a special private key. You'll get a message from our vendor to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't have to do anything manually since our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, if you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you want to secure, you will be able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll need to enter the information for the certificate when it's different from the one you have inside your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request along with the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL from us, you only need to pick the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't need to set up the certificate manually. In case you wish to obtain the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. Then you will need to install the certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you experience any troubles, you'll be able to contact us and we'll install the SSL within a couple of minutes.
