A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login information that are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Cloud Hosting
We offer SSL certificates along with our cloud hosting packages, so if you'd like to provide protection to the data your visitors send, you're able to obtain one from your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you will be able to enter the company/personal details which you wish to be associated with the certificate and our system will generate the CSR plus a specific private key. You will get an e-mail from our vendor to confirm the order and following that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this attribute in the wizard throughout your order. This way, you will not need to do anything at all manually since our system will do the required and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Certainly, in case you wish to use another SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created from your account.
