A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide SSL certificates along with our cloud website hosting packages, so if you would like to provide protection to the details your visitors send, you'll be able to obtain one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR as well as a specific private key. You will get an e-mail from our supplier to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this attribute in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you won't have to do anything manually because our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, if you prefer to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've created from your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you wish to secure, you are able to get a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll just need to enter the details for the certificate in case it's not the same as the one you already have inside the account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request and the private key associated with it. If you decide to purchase the SSL from us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to install the certificate manually. If you plan to get the SSL from some other company, you only need to save the CSR code. After that you will have to set up the certificate, but if you've never done this before or you experience any kind of troubles, you can get in touch with us and we'll set up the SSL within a few minutes.
