A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize 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 - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you're able to enter and view the contact information that you would like to be used for the certificate and after that choose the auto-configuration function that we've introduced so that we can make things even easier - as soon as you approve the SSL request by hitting the link that you will receive through electronic mail after you send the order, our system will install everything for you, so you will not have to do anything manually at any point.

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you want to secure, you will be able to order a new SSL with a few clicks. You'll just have to type in the details for your certificate in case it is different from the one you already have inside your account and our system will set up the Certificate Signing Request as well as the private key associated with it.
