A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and login information that 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 and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize 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 four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

We provide SSL certificates together with our cloud hosting packages, so if you would like to give protection to the data your visitors send, you will be able to obtain one directly from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you're able to enter the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a special private key. You'll get an email from our vendor to confirm the order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually because our system will do the required and your new certificate will be active soon after that. Needless to say, in case you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you have created using your account.
