A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
