If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for 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 e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

Employing our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a specific private key. You'll get an email from our supplier to verify your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you won't need to do anything manually because our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Needless to say, in case you wish to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you create an e-store and / or you have some login form and your site is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud platform, you might wish to use an SSL certificate. As we offer SSLs together with our web hosting services, you're able to acquire a new certificate through the very same Hepsia Control Panel where you manage your website content. All you'll have to do is to fill the necessary information - business and personal. As we have an auto-installer, our system will create the Certificate Signing Request plus the Private Key, then keep track of the SSL status with our vendor and install everything for you. The only action required by you is to confirm the certificate order via e-mail. In case you already have an alternative vendor, you can only create a CSR and then send it to them, so that they can issue an SSL that you are able to set up inside your account with us.
