In case you offer services and products on your site and you would like the payment information that people upload to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
We provide SSL certificates in addition to our web hosting packages, so if you wish to secure the details your visitors submit, you are able to get one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details which you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a unique private key. You'll receive a message from our supplier to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not need to do anything at all manually because our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Needless to say, in case you wish to use a different SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated using your account.
