A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account details that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
We provide SSL certificates along with our shared hosting plans, so if you wish to provide protection to the details your visitors send, you'll be able to obtain one from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you'll be able to enter the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR along with a special private key. You will get an e-mail from our vendor in order to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active soon after that. Certainly, in case you wish to use a different SSL service provider, you can still use the CSR that you've generated using your account.
