A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Website Hosting

If you host a website in a Linux website hosting package with us and you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for it, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and update the contact info that you want to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration attribute that we have introduced to make things easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through e-mail after you submit your order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't need to do anything manually at any point. If you would like to receive your certificate elsewhere, you're able to use our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to another service provider. A private key connected with the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
