A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've 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 with our company and you wish to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and view the contact info that you'd like to be used for your certificate and after that pick the auto-configuration feature that we've released so that we can make things easier - when you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through e-mail after you send your order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any point. If you wish to get your certificate somewhere else, you'll be able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
