A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
