A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
