A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
