A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your website and its users. 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 registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

In case you host a site in a Linux shared website hosting package with our company and you want to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and update the contact info that you want to be used for your certificate and then choose the auto-configuration function that we've developed so that we can make things a lot less difficult - once you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via email after you submit your order, our system will install everything for you, so you won't need to do anything manually at any time. If you want to receive your certificate elsewhere, you are able to employ our CSR generation instrument and send the Request code to an alternative vendor. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the same section of your account.
