A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
