If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, 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 should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details 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 is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
In case you host a site in a Linux web hosting from us and you wish to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you can enter and update the contact info that you'd like to be used for your certificate and after that select the auto-configuration feature that we have released to make things even easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through electronic mail after you submit the order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not need to do anything manually at any moment. If you want to receive your certificate somewhere else, you can employ our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to the other service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
