A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting
In case you host a website in a web hosting account ordered through our company and its customers send sensitive information, you can get an SSL certificate for it straight through your hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, which means that you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the needed information for the Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You're able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request as well as a Private Key for any site that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account with us by using the SSL generator tool that is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You only have to input the SSL contact and admin information and the two codes will be generated and available in your account at all times even if you don't save them directly. As we supply SSL certificates, you're able to get one from us and during the CSR generation you can employ the auto-configuration option which we provide, then proceed with the order. This way, you will not need to deal with anything else afterwards because our system will install the SSL for you as soon as it is issued. To use another certificate vendor, you should save the CSR and provide it to them, then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our technical support team is available 24/7 in case you experience any difficulties with this.
