A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
