A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of 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. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer SSL certificates together with our cloud website hosting plans, so if you would like to secure the details your visitors submit, you're able to get one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a specific private key. You will receive an e-mail message from our vendor in order to confirm your order and after that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this function in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything manually as our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, in case you prefer to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've generated from your account.
