A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize 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 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
