In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which 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 via an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

We offer SSL certificates in addition to our shared hosting packages, so if you wish to protect the info your visitors send, you'll be able to acquire one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR and a unique private key. You will receive a message from our vendor in order to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually because our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, if you prefer to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated through your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you would like to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You will only need to enter the details for your certificate in case it is not the same as the one you have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request along with the private key related to it. If you decide to obtain the SSL through us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't need to set up the certificate manually. If you want to acquire the SSL from a different company, you just have to save the CSR code. Then you'll need to install the certificate, but if you've never done this before or you experience any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we will install the SSL in a couple of minutes.
