In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

In case you host a site in a Linux web hosting package with our company and you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and update the contact information that you'd like to be used for the certificate and after that pick the auto-configuration feature that we've developed in order to make things even easier - as soon as you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through e-mail after you post the order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't have to do anything manually at any point. If you would like to get your certificate elsewhere, you will be able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and submit the Request code to an alternative service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
