If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, 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 info related to 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 email address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
If you host a website in a cloud hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors send private info, you can acquire an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you just have to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary data for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you wish to secure, you're able to obtain a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll have to enter the details for your certificate when it's not the same as the one you already have inside your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. Should you wish to obtain the SSL from some other company, you only need to save the CSR code.
