A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account info which are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
