A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Hosting
We offer SSL certificates in addition to our hosting packages, so if you'd like to protect the info your visitors submit, you can obtain one from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you are able to enter the company/personal details that you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR along with a specific private key. You will get an e-mail message from our supplier to verify your order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically in case you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. In this way, you will not need to do anything at all manually since our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active shortly after that. Certainly, in case you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've generated from your account.
