In case you offer services and goods on your site and you'd like the payment info that customers send to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of your web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you will need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each and every vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host a website in a cloud website hosting account obtained through our company and its visitors upload sensitive info, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from your website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, thus you only have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you wish to secure, you are able to order a new SSL with a few clicks.
