A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
