A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are 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 four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
