If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login information that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity that 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 sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and depending 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 along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host a site in a shared hosting from us and you need to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and update the contact info that you would like to be used for your certificate and after that select the auto-configuration attribute that we have created so that we can make things even easier - once you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive via e-mail after you submit your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you won't need to do anything manually at any point. If you'd like to acquire a certificate elsewhere, you can take advantage of our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to an alternative service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
