A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of 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 plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
