A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted 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 as well as the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
