A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, 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 information that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
