In case you offer services and products on your website and you'd like the payment details that users upload to be secure, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
We provide SSL certificates along with our cloud hosting plans, so if you wish to protect the data your visitors send, you will be able to obtain one right from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you'll be able to type in the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a special private key. You will get a message from our vendor to confirm your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not need to do anything manually because our system will do the required and your new certificate will be active quickly after that. Of course, should you prefer to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated through your account.
