A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
