If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information that users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host a website in a Linux shared website hosting package from us and you wish to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and update the contact information that you would like to be used for the certificate and then select the auto-configuration feature that we've introduced in order to make things easier - when you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive via e-mail after you post the order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any time. If you'd like to acquire your certificate elsewhere, you are able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and send the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
