A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account details that are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key 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 four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
