If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment information that clients send to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to get an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
We offer SSL certificates together with our cloud hosting packages, so if you'd like to protect the data your visitors submit, you will be able to get one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR as well as a specific private key. You will get an email from our vendor in order to confirm your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not have to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, should you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you want to secure, you are able to get a new SSL with several clicks. You will just need to type in the details for your certificate when it is different from the one you have in the account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request in addition to the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through us, you only have to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't need to set up the certificate manually. In case you wish to obtain the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. After that you'll have to set up the certificate, however if you've never done this before or you have any kind of issues, you will be able to get in touch with us and we will install the SSL in a matter of minutes.
