If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that 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 should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A 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 from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
We provide SSL certificates in addition to our website hosting packages, so if you'd like to secure the info your visitors upload, you can obtain one from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a special private key. You will get a message from our vendor to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not have to do anything manually since our system will do the required and your new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, if you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have generated from your account.
