In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four 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 loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

In case you host a site in a website hosting
with our company and you'd like to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and view the contact info that you wish to be used for your certificate and then select the auto-configuration feature that we've introduced in order to make things easier - when you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via email after you submit your order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not need to do anything manually at any time. If you want to obtain a certificate elsewhere, you will be able to employ our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.

accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you'd like to secure, you are able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You will just have to enter the info for the certificate in case it is different from the one you have in your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request in addition to the private key related to it. If you decide to buy the SSL from our company, you only have to pick the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually.
