If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login info which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a website in a shared web hosting with our company and you need to get an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and view the contact information that you want to be used for the certificate and then pick the auto-configuration function that we've released to make things easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through e-mail after you send the order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you wish to receive a certificate somewhere else, you will be able to use our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to the other vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
