A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting

In case you host a website in a shared web hosting from us and you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our intuitive SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and view the contact information that you'd like to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration feature that we've released in order to make things even easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive through email after you send the order, our system will install everything on your behalf, so you will not need to do anything manually at any point. If you'd like to get your certificate elsewhere, you will be able to use our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
