A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
