A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to have an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a trusted 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 - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
