If you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment info that clients submit to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a server, but to acquire an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains your web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate your Request, the actual certificate along with a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.

In case you host a site in a Linux cloud hosting package from us and you'd like to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact info that you would like to be used for your certificate and after that pick the auto-configuration function that we have created in order to make things a lot less difficult - as soon as you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through electronic mail after you post your order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any time. If you'd like to acquire a certificate somewhere else, you can take advantage of our CSR generation tool and send the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
