A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information that are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a certified 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. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
