If you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment details that customers submit to be protected, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
We offer SSL certificates along with our shared hosting plans, so if you'd like to give protection to the details your visitors submit, you will be able to get one from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you are able to type in the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a unique private key. You'll receive an e-mail message from our vendor to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't need to do anything at all manually since our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, in case you prefer to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a Certificate Signing Request generator as well as an SSL set up wizard, therefore if you would like to obtain a certificate for any website that you host on our servers, you can do it in no more than a couple of minutes. As soon as you sign in to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts, you will be able to head to the SSL Certificates section and enter your personal and business information. Our system will create the CSR, so you'll have two options - if you wish to get the certificate from us, you'll be able to process with the order in the same section and our system will set up the SSL automatically as soon as it was issued, or you could save the CSR on your personal computer and then use it in order to get an SSL via a different seller.
