A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide SSL certificates in addition to our cloud web hosting packages, so if you would like to secure the information your visitors submit, you are able to obtain one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you can type in the company/personal details which you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a unique private key. You will get a message from our vendor to confirm 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 at all manually because our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active soon after that. Certainly, if you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have generated from your account.
