If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.

We offer SSL certificates together with our shared website hosting
packages, so if you would like to secure the info your visitors send, you can acquire one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you'll be able to type in the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a specific private key. You will receive an email message from our supplier to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not have to do anything manually since our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active quickly after that. Certainly, should you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated through your account.
