A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
