A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that begins 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 using their Internet browsers.
