A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and account details that are exchanged between your site and its visitors. 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 licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host a site in a shared website hosting account obtained from our company and its customers submit sensitive data, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it straight from your hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you only have to select the domain/subdomain and type in the needed data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only generate a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you develop an online store and / or you have some login form and your website is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud hosting platform, you might want to use an SSL certificate. Because we offer SSLs in addition to our web hosting services, you'll be able to acquire your new certificate from the same Hepsia Control Panel where you control your site content. All that you'll need to do is to enter the required data - personal and business. Considering that we have an auto-installer, our system will create the Certificate Signing Request plus the Private Key, after that monitor the SSL status with our vendor and install everything for you.
