A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information that are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
