A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
In case you host a site in a cloud hosting account ordered from our company and its users submit sensitive info, you can obtain an SSL certificate for it directly through your website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, which means that you just need to choose the domain/subdomain and type in the necessary data for the Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve your order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be installed automatically by our system, so you won't have to deal with any codes or settings. If you would like to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only acquire a CSR using your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You'll see the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you develop an online store or you have some login form and your website is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud platform, you might want to use an SSL certificate. Because we offer SSLs along with our hosting services, you are able to acquire your new certificate from the very same Hepsia Control Panel where you manage your site content. All that you'll have to do is to enter the required data - personal and business. As we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request as well as the Private Key, then keep track of the SSL status with our vendor and set up everything for you. The only action required on your end is to confirm the certificate order via electronic mail. In case you already have some other vendor, you can just obtain a CSR and then submit it to them, so they can give you an SSL which you are able to set up inside your account here.
