A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
