A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account details that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
