A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a dependable issuer. During 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 and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
