A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
