A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
If you host a website in a shared web hosting plan from us and you need to get an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and update the contact information that you wish to be used for your certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration attribute that we have introduced to make things a lot less difficult - as soon as you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through email after you send the order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you won't be required to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to get your certificate elsewhere, you are able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
