If you offer goods and services on your site and you'd like the payment information that clients upload to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to get an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you want to secure, you are able to order a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll have to type in the info for your certificate if it is not the same as the one you have inside the account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL from us, you only need to pick the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to get the SSL from a different company, you only need to save the CSR code. After that you will have to set up the certificate, but if you have never done this before or you have any kind of problems, you can contact us and we will install the SSL in a couple of minutes.
