In case you offer goods and services on your site and you'd like the payment info that customers submit to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to get an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of your web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate which is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each and every vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account purchased from our company and its visitors submit private info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If if you plan to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a Certificate Signing Request generator as well as an SSL set up wizard, so if you would like to obtain a certificate for any website that you host on our servers, you can do it in no more than a few minutes. When you sign in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, that is provided with all of the semi-dedicated accounts, you can go to the SSL Certificates section and type in your personal and business data. Our system will generate the CSR, so you'll have 2 options - if you wish to get the certificate from our company, you're able to process with the order in the same section and our system will install the SSL automatically once it has been issued, or you could save the CSR on your personal computer and then use it to get an SSL from a different seller.
