A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts 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 through their Internet browsers.
