A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account details that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of 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 Web Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our shared web hosting packages, so if you'd like to give protection to the details your visitors upload, you're able to obtain one from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a special private key. You'll get an email from our supplier to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you won't need to do anything manually because our system will do the required and your new certificate will be active quickly after that. Needless to say, in case you prefer to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've generated using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request as well as a Private Key for any website that you host in a semi-dedicated server account on our end through the SSL generator instrument which is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You just need to input the SSL contact and admin info and the two codes will be created and available in your account all the time even if you do not save them directly. As we supply SSL certificates, you will be able to obtain one through us and during the CSR generation you could employ the auto-configuration option that we provide, and then proceed with your order. This way, you won't need to deal with anything else afterwards as our system will install the SSL for you after it is issued. To use another certificate vendor, you need to save the CSR and give it to them, and then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our technical support crew is online 24/7 if you have any difficulties with the latter.
