A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and login details which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Web Hosting

If you host a website in a web hosting with us and you want to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and update the contact information that you want to be used for your certificate and then select the auto-configuration feature that we have developed in order to make things a lot less difficult - once you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via electronic mail after you post your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you would like to obtain a certificate elsewhere, you're able to use our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
