A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
