A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and account information that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
