A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login information that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
SSL Certificate Generator in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a website in a shared website hosting account acquired from our company and its visitors submit sensitive information, you can get an SSL certificate for it straight from your web hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks. We have an easy-to-work-with order wizard, so you only need to choose the domain/subdomain and enter the mandatory data for your Certificate Signing Request. You'll receive an e-mail to approve your order and soon after the SSL is issued, it'll be set up automatically by our system, so you will not need to deal with any codes or settings. If you wish to use the services of some other Certificate Authority, you can only obtain a CSR from your Control Panel and then copy the code that you are required to submit for the SSL. You will see the private key generated together with the CSR in the very same section.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is provided with our semi-dedicated server accounts has a built-in SSL certificate request generator, so if you host a site that you'd like to secure, you'll be able to obtain a new SSL with a few clicks.
