A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and login info which are exchanged between your website 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, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
