A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
