A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, that 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 set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
