A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login information that are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a trusted issuer. During 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 plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a website in a cloud hosting account purchased from our company and its visitors send private data, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with only a couple of clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, therefore you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary information for your Certificate Signing Request. You will receive an email message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it will be installed automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you need to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated along with the CSR in the same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you wish to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You will only have to enter the info for your certificate in case it is different from the one you already have inside your account and our system will install the Certificate Signing Request along with the private key associated with it.
