A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order 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 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
