A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a trusted 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 4 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've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a site in a shared web hosting account acquired through our company and its visitors upload private information, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly from your website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the required data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will find 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 that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you want to secure, you are able to order a new SSL with several clicks. You'll just need to type in the info for your certificate if it is not the same as the one you already have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to obtain the SSL through us, you only have to select the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. Should you prefer to get the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. Then you'll need to install the certificate, yet if you've never done this before or you have any kind of difficulties, you will be able to get in touch with us and we will set up the SSL in a couple of minutes.
