A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
