A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, 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 web browsers.
