A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
We provide SSL certificates along with our shared website hosting plans, so if you'd like to secure the details your visitors upload, you can obtain one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR as well as a special private key. You'll receive an e-mail message from our supplier in order to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't need to do anything at all manually because our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active quickly after that. Needless to say, if you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a Certificate Signing Request generator plus an SSL set up wizard, therefore if you wish to obtain a certificate for any site that you host on our servers, you can do it in just a couple of minutes. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is provided with all the semi-dedicated accounts, you will be able to go to the SSL Certificates section and type in your personal and business data. Our system will create the CSR, so you'll have 2 options - if you would like to get the certificate through us, you will be able to process with the order in the same section and our system will set up the SSL automatically once it has been issued, or you can save the CSR on your PC and then use it in order to acquire an SSL from a different seller.
