A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to have an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and account details that are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will 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 information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
