A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL starting 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 using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting

If you host a website in a website hosting account acquired from our company and its customers upload private info, you'll be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you only need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory information for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you would like to secure, you'll be able to get a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll just have to enter the details for your certificate in case it's not the same as the one you have in your account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it.
