A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host a website in a shared web hosting plan from our company and you'd like to get an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and update the contact information that you wish to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration function that we have introduced so that we can make things easier - when you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via e-mail after you submit the order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not need to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to get your certificate elsewhere, you will be able to use our CSR generation tool and send the Request code to the other vendor. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request along with a Private Key for any website that you host within a semi-dedicated server account on our end by using the SSL generator tool that is available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You just have to type in the SSL contact and administrative details and the 2 codes will be generated and available in your account all the time even if you don't save them right away. Since we offer SSL certificates, you are able to obtain one via our company and throughout the CSR generation you could take advantage of the auto-configuration option that we offer, and then proceed with your order. This way, you won't have to deal with anything else afterwards since our system will set up the SSL for you when it's issued. To use a different certificate vendor, you have to save the CSR and send it to them, then install the SSL that they'll give you. Our technical support team is available 24/7 if you have any difficulties with the latter.
