A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its users. 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 upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
