In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login data which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

We provide SSL certificates along with our shared web hosting plans, so if you wish to provide protection to the info your visitors submit, you can acquire one right from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you need to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a specific private key. You will receive an e-mail from our supplier in order to verify the order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. This way, you will not need to do anything manually as our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you'd like to secure, you will be able to acquire a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll need to enter the details for the certificate if it's different from the one you have in your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it. If you decide to acquire the SSL from us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to install the certificate manually. If you want to get the SSL from another company, you just need to save the CSR code. After that you'll have to set up the certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any difficulties, you'll be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL within a few minutes.
