A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
