A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, 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 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 - the two keys, the certificate and 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 have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide SSL certificates along with our cloud website hosting plans, so if you wish to give protection to the details your visitors submit, you'll be able to obtain one right from your Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can enter the company/personal details that you want to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR as well as a special private key. You will receive an email from our vendor in order to verify the order and next, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything manually since our system will do the required and your brand new certificate will be active soon after that. Of course, in case you prefer to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created using your account.
