A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting

In case you host a site in a Linux hosting plan from us and you need to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you are able to do that with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and review the contact info that you'd like to be used for the certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration feature that we have released to make things even easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive via email after you post the order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not need to do anything manually at any time. If you wish to obtain your certificate elsewhere, you will be able to use our CSR generation tool and send the Request code to another vendor. A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the very same section of your account.
