A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
