If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login data which users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our website hosting plans, so if you would like to provide protection to the data your visitors send, you are able to acquire one from your Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you'll be able to enter the company/personal details that you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a specific private key. You will receive a message from our vendor to confirm your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything manually since our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active quickly after that. Certainly, should you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've created from your account.
