If you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment information that users submit to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, postal 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 digitally using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate your Request, the actual certificate as well as a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host a site in a cloud plan with our company and you want to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you are able to do that with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and update the contact information that you wish to be used for the certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration feature that we've introduced so that we can make things a lot less difficult - when you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through email after you post your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you will not need to do anything manually at any point. If you would like to get your certificate elsewhere, you can employ our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key connected to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
