A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account information which are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
