A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and login information which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of 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 along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
