A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login info which are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
