A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encode all of the payment and account info that are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify 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 four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
