If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.

Employing our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details that you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a special private key. You will get an email message from our vendor to confirm your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order.

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you want to secure, you're able to get a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll need to enter the info for the certificate if it's not the same as the one you already have in the account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to buy the SSL through our company, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't need to install the certificate manually.
