If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request plus a Private Key for any site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account with us by using the SSL generator instrument that's available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You only have to input the SSL contact and admin info and the 2 codes will be created and available in your account at all times even if you don't save them right away. Given that we supply SSL certificates, you'll be able to get one from us and during the CSR generation you could enable the auto-configuration option that we provide, then proceed with the order. This way, you will not have to deal with anything else afterwards because our system will set up the SSL for you when it's issued. To use some other certificate vendor, you should save the CSR and provide it to them, then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our tech support crew will be available 24/7 if you have any difficulties with that.
