A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information which are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
