A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. During 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 plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting

We provide SSL certificates along with our shared website hosting plans, so if you wish to provide protection to the info your visitors send, you'll be able to obtain one directly from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you'll be able to enter the company/personal details which you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a special private key. You will receive an e-mail message from our vendor to confirm your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't have to do anything manually because our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, should you prefer to use a different SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated from your account.
