A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host a site in a Linux shared web hosting package with our company and you need to get an SSL certificate for it, you'll be able to do that with just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Using our user-friendly SSL order wizard, you can enter and review the contact info that you'd like to be used for the certificate and after that select the auto-configuration attribute that we've developed in order to make things easier - as soon as you accept the SSL request by clicking on the link that you will receive via electronic mail after you submit your order, our system will set up everything on your behalf, so you will not need to do anything manually at any time. If you wish to get a certificate somewhere else, you are able to employ our CSR generation instrument and upload the Request code to the other service provider. A private key connected to the CSR will also be created and available in the very same section of your account.
