A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
