A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website and 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 issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
