A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account information which are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
