Frequently Asked Questions

  1. When a browser visits a website, provided the site has an SSL/ TLS certificate, the two begin what is known as the SSL handshake.
  2. The first step of the SSL handshake involves the browser checking the validity of the SSL certificate, making sure it is authenticated by a legitimate party and therefore trustworthy.
  3. Every SSL certificate has two keys, an associated public key and a private key. Separately, their job is to handle encryption and decryption to communicate securely during the SSL handshake.
  4. After the browser (the client) confirms the SSL certificate is valid, the client and website (the server) create what’s known as a session key, this is a third key. The third key (the symmetric key) is used for the remained of the secure connection.
  5. The handshake takes places over a few hundred milliseconds. Once a secure connection is established, the client and server are communicating safely.

SSL is short for secure socket layer – a technology that encrypts communication between users and a website. This encryption ensures that important data such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information is sent from the user to the site without the risk of interception.

When you purchase an SSL certificate, an expiration date is encoded by the certificate authority, and cannot be changed. Beginning 30 days prior to the expiration, but before the actual expiry date, you must complete the renewal process. When you use Listedhosting as your SSL provider, we will contact you via email during the renewal window to remind you to take action. The process is easy, and requires only four steps.

Once your SSL cert has been purchased, the next step is to have a CSR code generated on the server where your website is hosted. You will need to have a dedicated IP address, or SNI technology active any shared servers. Using a web host that supports third-party SSL certificates, is important, as well.

When you change your hosting service, believe that your CSR/RSA pair has been compromised, or replace the domain name(s) for which the SSL was issued, you need to have your SSL encryption certificate reissued. Changes to contact details in the certificate may require a reissue, as well. To begin the process, you must generate a new CSR/RSA pair and save your RSA for further installation. Be sure to save your RSA for later steps in the installation. This can usually be done by the user, but Listedhosting will be able to assist.
