If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
If you host a site in a cloud hosting plan with our company and you need to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you are able to do that with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and review the contact info that you want to be used for your certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration function that we have developed so that we can make things a lot less difficult - as soon as you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through email after you send the order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not need to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to acquire your certificate somewhere else, you can take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and send the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected with the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
