A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and login information which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our shared hosting packages, so if you would like to provide protection to the information your visitors send, you will be able to get one right from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR and a unique private key. You'll get an email message from our vendor in order to verify the order and next, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. In this way, you won't need to do anything manually because our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, in case you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created using your account.
