A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, 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 web browsers.
