A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to get an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login information which will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout 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 as well as the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.

SSL Certificate Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
You're able to generate a new Certificate Signing Request and a Private Key for any website that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account with us using the SSL generator tool which is available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You only have to type in the SSL contact and admin info and the 2 codes will be created and available in your account all the time even if you don't save them right away. Since we provide SSL certificates, you will be able to obtain one from our company and throughout the CSR generation you can take advantage of the auto-configuration option that we provide, then proceed with the order.
