A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting

In case you host a website in a Linux hosting plan from us and you would like to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and review the contact info that you want to be used for the certificate and then pick the auto-configuration function that we have created in order to make things easier - once you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through 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 moment. If you want to receive a certificate somewhere else, you're able to employ our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key linked to 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 web hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you want to secure, you're able to get a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will just need to type in the details for your certificate when it's different from the one you have inside your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it. If you decide to obtain the SSL through us, you only need to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. Should you plan to get the SSL from some other company, you only need to save the CSR code. Afterwards you'll have to set up your certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you experience any kind of problems, you'll be able to contact us and we'll install the SSL in a couple of minutes.
