A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a reliable issuer. During 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 along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.

We provide SSL certificates in addition to our cloud hosting packages, so if you would like to protect the details your visitors send, you will be able to acquire one from the Hepsia Control Panel. With our SSL wizard, you're able to type in the company/personal details which you would like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a special private key. You'll get a message from our vendor to confirm the order and after that, the SSL certificate will be set up automatically if you have selected this attribute in the wizard during your order. This way, you won't have to do anything manually as our system will do the necessary and your new certificate will be active shortly after that. Of course, if you prefer to use some other SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you have created using your account.
SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that comes with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a website that you'd like to secure, you will be able to acquire a new SSL with several clicks. You'll just have to type in the info for your certificate in case it's different from the one you already have in the account and our system will create the Certificate Signing Request in addition to the private key associated with it. If you decide to acquire the SSL through our company, you only need to pick the auto-configuration option throughout the order and our system will do the necessary, so you won't have to install the certificate manually.
