A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of 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 plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting

We offer SSL certificates along with our hosting plans, so if you'd like to provide protection to the data your visitors send, you are able to obtain one from your Hepsia Control Panel. Employing our SSL wizard, you will be able to type in the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR and a specific private key. You'll get an e-mail message from our vendor in order to verify your order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically in case you have selected this function in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not need to do anything at all manually since our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active shortly after that. Needless to say, in case you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created from your account.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you would like to secure, you can acquire a new SSL with a couple of clicks. You'll have to enter the information for your certificate if it's different from the one you have in the account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request plus the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through our company, you only have to choose the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the needed, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you prefer to obtain the SSL from some other company, you only have to save the CSR code. Subsequently you'll have to install your certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you have any issues, you'll be able to contact us and we'll set up the SSL in a matter of minutes.
