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