A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized 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. Throughout 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. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
