A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login information which are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
