A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
