If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for 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 e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of 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 Website Hosting

We provide SSL certificates in addition to our website hosting plans, so if you'd like to provide protection to the data your visitors upload, you will be able to get one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details that you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a special private key. You will receive an e-mail from our vendor to confirm the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, in case you wish to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
