A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and login information which are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
