If you offer services and goods on your site and you would like the payment data that people send to be risk-free, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR features your web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

In case you host a site in a shared hosting account purchased from our company and its customers upload sensitive information, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed info for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you'd like to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You will only have to enter the details for your certificate when it's not the same as the one you have inside your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to acquire the SSL from us, you just have to pick the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to install the certificate manually. In case you wish to obtain the SSL from another company, you just have to save the CSR code. After that you'll need to set up the certificate, but if you have never done this before or you have any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we will install the SSL in a few minutes.
