A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
