A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to get an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting

In case you host a website in a Linux website hosting package with us and you'd like to get an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and view the contact info that you'd like to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration option that we've introduced in order to make things even easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive via e-mail after you send your order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any point. If you want to obtain your certificate somewhere else, you're able to take advantage of our CSR generation tool and submit the Request code to another service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
