A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host a website in a cloud website hosting plan from us and you want to get an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with just a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our intuitive SSL order wizard, you'll be able to enter and review the contact info that you want to be used for your certificate and after that pick the auto-configuration feature that we've released so that we can make things easier - once you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive via electronic mail after you send your order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not be required to do anything manually at any point. If you'd like to get a certificate somewhere else, you'll be able to take advantage of our CSR generation tool and send the Request code to an alternative service provider. A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the same section of your account.
