A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you'll be able to 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 via their Internet browsers.
