A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize 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 of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
