A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account information that are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
