A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
