A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and login information that are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
