A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
