A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login information that are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's 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 installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
