A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site 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, etcetera. Based upon 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 are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, 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 information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
