A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
