A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host a site in a shared hosting account acquired through our company and its users send private data, you'll be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you just need to select the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR from your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you'd like to secure, you can obtain a new SSL with several clicks. You'll have to enter the info for the certificate if it's not the same as the one you have in your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. If you want to acquire the SSL from some other company, you just have to save the CSR code. After that you'll need to set up the certificate, but if you have never done this before or you experience any troubles, you'll be able to contact us and we will set up the SSL within a couple of minutes.
