A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to have an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account details which are exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated 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 instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
