A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, 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 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 four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account ordered through our company and its visitors upload sensitive info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, thus you only have to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the needed data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail message to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated together with the CSR in the same section.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you'd like to secure, you will be able to get a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll need to type in the info for your certificate if it's different from the one you have inside your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key associated with it. If you decide to purchase the SSL through us, you just need to select the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually.
