A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and login info which are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and 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 certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they're 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 of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

We offer SSL certificates along with our cloud hosting plans, so if you would like to secure the details your visitors upload, you're able to acquire one from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR as well as a unique private key. You will receive an e-mail message from our vendor in order to confirm your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you won't have to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, should you prefer to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated using your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you want to secure, you're able to obtain a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will only need to type in the details for the certificate if it's not the same as the one you already have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it. If you decide to purchase the SSL through our company, you just need to pick the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you plan to acquire the SSL from some other company, you just have to save the CSR code. Subsequently you'll need to install your certificate, but if you haven't done this before or you have any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we will set up the SSL within a couple of minutes.
