A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and login information which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting 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 using their Internet browsers.
