A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the site 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 issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting 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.

Since we supply SSLs along with our hosting services, you are able to order a new certificate via the same Hepsia Control Panel where you control your website content. All that you'll have to do is to enter the required data - business and personal. As we have an auto-installer, our system will generate the Certificate Signing Request plus the Private Key, after that monitor the SSL status with our vendor and set up everything for you.
