A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a trusted 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 plus the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
