In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.

Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and review the contact info that you would like to be used for the certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration option that we've created in order to make things a lot less difficult - once you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive via email after you send your order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any moment.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you want to secure, you'll be able to order a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will only need to type in the details for your certificate when it's not the same as the one you have in your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to purchase the SSL from our company, you just have to select the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. Should you prefer to get the SSL from another company, you only need to save the CSR code.
