In case you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment data that users submit to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you will need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

We provide SSL certificates together with our shared hosting packages, so if you wish to give protection to the data your visitors send, you can obtain one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details that you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a specific private key. You will receive a message from our vendor to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually as our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, should you wish to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've generated through your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you would like to secure, you're able to get a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will only have to enter the information for your certificate when it's not the same as the one you already have inside your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request and the private key associated with it. If you decide to get the SSL through us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you want to obtain the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. Subsequently you will need to install the certificate, yet if you've never done this before or you experience any kind of problems, you'll be able to get in touch with us and we'll install the SSL in a couple of minutes.
