A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and account details which are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
