In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login information that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance 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 posted information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of 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 plan from our company and you want to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and review the contact info that you would like to be used for the certificate and then choose the auto-configuration function that we have introduced in order to make things even easier - once you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive via email after you submit your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not have to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to acquire a certificate elsewhere, you can take advantage of our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected to the CSR will also be generated and available in the very same section of your account.
