A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

If you host a website in a shared web hosting account obtained through our company and its customers send private information, you will be able to obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you only need to select the domain/subdomain and enter the needed details for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you intend to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR using your Control Panel then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you can order a new SSL with several clicks. You will just have to type in the info for the certificate when it is different from the one you have in the account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request along with the private key related to it. If you decide to acquire the SSL through our company, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually. Should you want to get the SSL from some other company, you just have to save the CSR code.
