A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
