A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show 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 four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting

In case you host a site in a shared hosting account acquired through our company and its customers submit sensitive info, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it straight through your web hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, so you just have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the mandatory details for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly 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'd like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you would like to secure, you can get a new SSL with several clicks. You will just have to enter the info for the certificate if it is different from the one you already have inside your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request in addition to the private key associated with it. If you decide to purchase the SSL through our company, you just need to select the auto-configuration option throughout your order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to acquire the SSL from another company, you just have to save the CSR code. After that you will have to set up your certificate, but if you've never done this before or you have any kind of issues, you can contact us and we will install the SSL in a matter of minutes.
