A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info which are exchanged between your website and its visitors. 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 upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

We offer SSL certificates together with our shared web hosting plans, so if you would like to give protection to the information your visitors upload, you will be able to acquire one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details which you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a special private key. You'll get a message from our vendor in order to verify the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you will not have to do anything at all manually because our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, in case you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated from your account.
