In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

We offer SSL certificates in addition to our website hosting plans, so if you would like to secure the data your visitors submit, you will be able to get one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details which you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a unique private key. You'll receive an e-mail message from our vendor in order to confirm the order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the necessary and your brand new certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, in case you prefer to use a different SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you launch a web store and / or you have some login form and your website is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud hosting platform, you might want to use an SSL certificate. As we supply SSLs in addition to our hosting services, you are able to acquire a new certificate through the same Hepsia Control Panel where you manage your site content. All that you will need to do is to type in the required information - business and personal. Considering that we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request along with the Private Key, then monitor the SSL status with our vendor and set up everything for you. The sole action required by you will be to approve the certificate order through e-mail. In case you already have some other vendor, you can just create a CSR and then send it to them, so they can issue an SSL which you will be able to set up in your account here.
