A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
We provide SSL certificates in addition to our web hosting plans, so if you'd like to provide protection to the details your visitors upload, you are able to obtain one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you're able to enter the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a specific private key. You'll get an email message from our vendor to confirm your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not have to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your new certificate will be active quickly after that. Certainly, in case you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created from your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request as well as a Private Key for any site that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account with us through the SSL generator instrument which is available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. You only need to enter the SSL contact and admin data and the 2 codes will be created and available in your account at all times even if you don't save them directly. As we supply SSL certificates, you can get one through us and during the CSR generation you could take advantage of the auto-configuration option which we offer, then proceed with your order. In this way, you won't have to deal with anything else afterwards as our system will set up the SSL for you as soon as it is issued. To use some other certificate supplier, you have to save the CSR and give it to them, and then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our technical support team is at your service 24/7 in case you have any difficulties with that.
