A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
