A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to have an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host a website in a Linux cloud web hosting service with our company and you need to obtain an SSL certificate for it, you're able to do that with only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. With our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you are able to enter and update the contact information that you wish to be used for the certificate and after that pick the auto-configuration feature that we've developed in order to make things a lot less difficult - when you approve the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive through email after you post your order, our system will set up everything for you, so you will not have to do anything manually at any time. If you would like to obtain a certificate elsewhere, you will be able to take advantage of our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to another vendor. A private key connected with the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you launch an online store or you have some login form and your website is hosted in a semi-dedicated server account on our cloud hosting platform, you might wish to use an SSL certificate. Since we provide SSLs along with our hosting services, you're able to obtain a new certificate via the same Hepsia Control Panel where you manage your site content. All that you'll have to do is to type in the required information - business and personal. Since we have an auto-installer, our system will create the Certificate Signing Request as well as the Private Key, then monitor the SSL status with our vendor and install everything for you. The only action required on your end is to approve the certificate order via email. If you already have another vendor, you can just get a CSR and then submit it to them, so that they can issue an SSL that you're able to set up inside your account with us.
