If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login info 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 example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that 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 Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a website in a cloud web hosting account purchased through our company and its customers send private info, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight through your website hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, therefore you just need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory details for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you want to secure, you are able to acquire a new SSL with a couple of clicks.
