A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account information that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
