If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website 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 a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a website in a Linux shared web hosting package from us and you need to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and review the contact information that you'd like to be used for your certificate and then pick the auto-configuration attribute that we've introduced so that we can make things easier - once you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through email after you submit your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you wish to get your certificate somewhere else, you can use our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
