A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting

We provide SSL certificates in addition to our shared website hosting packages, so if you'd like to secure the information your visitors send, you'll be able to get one right from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you will be able to enter the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR as well as a specific private key. You will receive an e-mail from our vendor to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything at all manually since our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Needless to say, if you prefer to use some other SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have generated using your account.
