If you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment details that customers send to be secure, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the data exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our shared web hosting packages, so if you'd like to give protection to the data your visitors send, you'll be able to get one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details that you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR as well as a specific private key. You will receive an e-mail from our supplier in order to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything manually as our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Needless to say, if you prefer to use some other SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've generated through your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you create an online store or you have some login form and your website is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud website hosting platform, you might want to use an SSL certificate. Because we provide SSLs along with our web hosting services, you're able to order a new certificate from the same Hepsia Control Panel where you control your website content. All you'll need to do is to fill the required info - business and personal. As we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request along with the Private Key, then keep track of the SSL status with our vendor and set up everything for you. The sole action required on your end is to confirm the certificate order via electronic mail. If you already have an alternative service provider, you can just obtain a CSR and then submit it to them, so that they can issue an SSL that you can set up inside your account here.
