A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to have an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login info that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, 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 to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you can 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 using their Internet browsers.
