If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which 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 vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique 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 information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

We offer SSL certificates along with our web hosting plans, so if you would like to give protection to the information your visitors send, you're able to get one right from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details which you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR as well as a special private key. You'll receive an email message from our supplier in order to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything at all manually because our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active shortly after that. Certainly, should you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated through your account.
