A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account info which are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts 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 Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host a website in a cloud hosting plan from our company and you need to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you are able to do that with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and view the contact information that you want to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration feature that we have created to make things even easier - when you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through e-mail after you post your order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't have to do anything manually at any moment. If you'd like to acquire a certificate elsewhere, you will be able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
