A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login info that are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
