A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details that are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
