A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account details which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
