A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and account details that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a shared hosting account purchased from our company and its users upload private information, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory information for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can generate a new Certificate Signing Request along with a Private Key for any site that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account with us by using the SSL generator tool that's available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You just need to type in the SSL contact and admin data then the two codes will be created and available in your account all of the time even if you don't save them directly. As we offer SSL certificates, you can acquire one via us and throughout the CSR generation you could enable the auto-configuration option that we provide, then proceed with the order. Thus, you will not have to deal with anything else afterwards because our system will install the SSL for you once it's issued. To use some other certificate vendor, you should save the CSR and give it to them, and then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our tech support will be at your service 24/7 in case you have any difficulties with that.
