A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account information which are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

We provide SSL certificates along with our shared hosting plans, so if you'd like to provide protection to the data your visitors send, you are able to obtain one from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you're able to enter the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a specific private key. You will receive an e-mail from our supplier in order to confirm your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not have to do anything at all manually because our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Certainly, if you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created using your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you want to secure, you are able to acquire a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll just have to enter the details for your certificate in case it's not the same as the one you have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request and the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you only have to choose the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't need to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to acquire the SSL from a different company, you just need to save the CSR code. After that you'll have to install the certificate, yet if you haven't done this before or you have any difficulties, you can contact us and we'll install the SSL in a few minutes.
