A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account info that are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

We provide SSL certificates together with our shared hosting plans, so if you'd like to secure the info your visitors send, you are able to acquire one from the Hepsia Control Panel. Using our SSL wizard, you're able to type in the company/personal details that you'd like to be associated with the certificate and our system will create the CSR plus a specific private key. You will get an e-mail message from our vendor in order to confirm the order and following that, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically if you have selected this feature in the wizard during your order. In this way, you will not need to do anything at all manually as our system will do the necessary and your unique certificate will be active quickly after that. Needless to say, if you wish to use a different SSL vendor, you can still use the CSR that you've created using your account.
