A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
