A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
