A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info 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 upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
In case you host a website in a Linux hosting package from us and you wish to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you can enter and view the contact information that you would like to be used for the certificate and then choose the auto-configuration function that we've introduced in order to make things a lot less difficult - when you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive via 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 point. If you wish to acquire a certificate elsewhere, you will be able to employ our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you wish to secure, you're able to order a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll just need to type in the details for the certificate in case it's different from the one you have inside your account and our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request and the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you only need to choose the auto-configuration option during the order and our system will do the necessary, so you will not have to set up the certificate manually. In case you want to acquire the SSL from a different company, you just need to save the CSR code. After that you will have to install your certificate, but if you have never done this before or you have any kind of issues, you can get in touch with us and we'll install the SSL within a few minutes.
