A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their web browsers.
