A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account info that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a reliable 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 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
