A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an integrated SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a site that you'd like to secure, you're able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You will just need to type in the information for the certificate when it is not the same as the one you have in your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request and the private key related to it. If you decide to get the SSL through us, you only have to select the auto-configuration option during your order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to set up the certificate manually. In the event that you want to get the SSL from some other company, you just need to save the CSR code. After that you will have to install your certificate, yet if you have never done this before or you experience any kind of issues, you can contact us and we will install the SSL within a matter of minutes.
