In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, so as to protect the payment and login data that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our shared hosting plans, so if you would like to secure the information your visitors upload, you're able to get one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a special private key. You will get an email message from our supplier to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything at all manually since our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, should you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
