A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to get an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account details which are 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 as well as e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
