If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login info which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website 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 through an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

We provide SSL certificates in addition to our shared hosting plans, so if you wish to secure the information your visitors upload, you can acquire one from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details which you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR and a specific private key. You will get an e-mail from our vendor in order to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you will not have to do anything at all manually because our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Needless to say, should you prefer to use some other SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've created through your account.
