A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
