A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login details that are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
