A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize 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 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
