A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login details that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
