A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account information that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
