A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
