A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation 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 beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

In case you host a website in a shared hosting from our company and you want to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and review the contact info that you wish to be used for the certificate and then select the auto-configuration option that we have developed to make things a lot less difficult - when you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive through e-mail after you post your order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not have to do anything manually at any time. If you would like to receive your certificate elsewhere, you will be able to take advantage of our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
