A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
