A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
