A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host a website in a shared hosting with our company and you need 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. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact info that you'd like to be used for your certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration feature that we have developed in order to make things easier - once you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you'll receive through e-mail after you submit your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not have to do anything manually at any point. If you'd like to get a certificate somewhere else, you are able to take advantage of our CSR generation tool and upload the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
