A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information that are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
