A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
