A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted issuer. During 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 and the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting
If you host a site in a Linux website hosting service from us and you wish to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and update the contact information that you'd like to be used for your certificate and then select the auto-configuration feature that we've created in order to make things even easier - when you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive via email after you send your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to acquire your certificate somewhere else, you can take advantage of our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a Certificate Signing Request generator as well as an SSL installation wizard, which means that if you wish to receive a certificate for any site which you host on our servers, you'll be able to do it in just a few minutes. Once you sign in to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts, you're able to go to the SSL Certificates section and type in your personal and business data. Our system will generate the CSR, so you'll have two options - if you want to get the certificate from our company, you can process with the order in the same section and our system will install your SSL automatically once it has been issued, or you could save the CSR on your machine and then use it to get an SSL via some other seller.
