A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting

We provide SSL certificates along with our shared website hosting packages, so if you wish to protect the details your visitors submit, you are able to acquire one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a unique private key. You will get a message from our vendor to confirm the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. In this way, you won't have to do anything manually since our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, if you wish to use another SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created through your account.
