In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 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 info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

We provide SSL certificates in addition to our cloud hosting plans, so if you'd like to protect the data your visitors upload, you can acquire one from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you're able to type in the company/personal details which you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a specific private key. You will get an e-mail message from our vendor in order to confirm the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, if you prefer to use some other SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created from your account.
