A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
