A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout 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 and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host a website in a shared hosting account obtained from our company and its visitors upload sensitive information, you will be able to acquire an SSL certificate for it directly through your web hosting Control Panel and with no more than a few clicks. We have an easy-to-operate order wizard, thus you just have to select the domain/subdomain and enter the necessary info for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an email to approve the order and shortly after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you won't need to deal with any codes or settings. If you want to use the services of another Certificate Authority, you can only create a CSR through your Control Panel then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You'll find the private key generated along with the CSR in the very same section.

The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has an inbuilt SSL certificate request generator, so in case you host a website that you'd like to secure, you will be able to obtain a new SSL with a couple of clicks.
