A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and login details that are exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
