A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account details that are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're 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 four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting

We offer SSL certificates together with our hosting packages, so if you wish to give protection to the data your visitors upload, you are able to obtain one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a special private key. You'll get an e-mail from our vendor in order to verify 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 will not need to do anything manually because our system will do the required and your new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, should you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that is provided 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 can acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You'll have to enter the details for your certificate in case it's not the same as the one you already have in your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through us, you only need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to install the certificate manually. Should you plan to acquire the SSL from some other company, you just need to save the CSR code. Subsequently you will need to set up the certificate, but if you have never done this before or you have any difficulties, you'll be able to get in touch with us and we'll set up the SSL within a couple of minutes.
