A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to have an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, 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 to identify 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 of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

In case you host a website in a web hosting account obtained through our company and its users upload private info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary information for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an e-mail message to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have 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

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you want to secure, you'll be able to order a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll have to enter the details for your certificate when it is not the same as the one you already have inside your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key related to it. If you decide to purchase the SSL through us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to install the certificate manually. In case you plan to get the SSL from some other company, you only need to save the CSR code. Then you will need to install the certificate, yet if you've never done this before or you experience any kind of problems, you can get in touch with us and we will set up the SSL within a few minutes.
