A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to have an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login details which are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a website in a cloud web hosting account ordered through our company and its customers upload private info, you will be able to get an SSL certificate for it directly through your hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks. We have an easy-to-use order wizard, so you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the required details for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only get a CSR through your Control Panel and then copy the code that you have to submit for the SSL. You will find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you want to secure, you'll be able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You will only have to enter the information for your certificate in case it is not the same as the one you already have in the account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request and the private key related to it. If you decide to buy the SSL from us, you just need to choose the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the needed, so you will not need to set up the certificate manually.
