A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account details that are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your site rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
