A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you would like to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
