A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a dependable issuer. During 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 and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
