In case you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment info that people submit to be protected, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you will need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.

In case you host a website in a hosting plan from our company and you wish to acquire 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 intuitive SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and view the contact info that you'd like to be used for your certificate and after that select the auto-configuration feature that we have created so that we can make things even easier - once you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through electronic mail after you send your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you won't need to do anything manually at any point.
