A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account information that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a site in a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you'd like to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you can do that with only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you will be able to enter and review the contact info that you want to be used for the certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration attribute that we have released so that we can make things a lot less difficult - when you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you'll receive through email after you send your order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't need to do anything manually at any moment. If you would like to receive your certificate somewhere else, you are able to use our CSR generation instrument and submit the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
