A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login details which are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation 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 site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
