A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud plan from our company and you'd like to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and update the contact info that you want to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration attribute that we've created in order to make things even easier - when you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via email after you post your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any time. If you'd like to get your certificate somewhere else, you can take advantage of our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be generated and available in the very same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you are able to obtain a new SSL with several clicks. You'll just have to type in the info for the certificate when it is different from the one you have in the account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to acquire the SSL through us, you only have to select the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to set up the certificate manually. Should you wish to get the SSL from another company, you only need to save the CSR code. Afterwards you will have to set up the certificate, however if you have never done this before or you experience any problems, you can contact us and we will install the SSL in a few minutes.
