A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login details which are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
