A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a dependable issuer. During 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. Next, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
