A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website as well as 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, a registered 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 created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
