A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
