A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account details that are exchanged between your website and its clients. 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, and the like. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
