A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a website in a shared website hosting account purchased from our company and its users submit private information, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, therefore you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed information for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail to approve the order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts include a Certificate Signing Request generator and an SSL set up wizard, so if you'd like to obtain a certificate for any site that you host on our servers, you can do it in no more than a couple of min. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts, you will be able to go to the SSL Certificates section and enter your personal and business info. Our system will generate the CSR, so you'll have two options - if you wish to acquire the certificate from our company, you'll be able to process with the order in the exact same section and our system will set up your SSL automatically as soon as it was issued, or you could save the CSR on your machine and then use it to get an SSL from some other seller.
