A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
