If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside 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 information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
If you host a website in a Linux website hosting package from us and you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and view the contact info that you would like to be used for your certificate after which choose the auto-configuration attribute that we have introduced so that we can make things a lot less difficult - once you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through e-mail after you send your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to get your certificate elsewhere, you'll be able to employ our CSR generation instrument 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.
