A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to have an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of 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 and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
