If you offer services and products on your site and you would like the payment data that clients submit to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a server, but to acquire an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains your web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our cloud hosting packages, so if you would like to give protection to the information your visitors upload, you're able to get one from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you are able to type in the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR and a unique private key. You will receive a message from our vendor in order to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this feature 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 quickly after that. Needless to say, should you wish to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've created from your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you want to secure, you're able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll just have to enter the information for your certificate in case it is not the same as the one you have in your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it.
