A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to identify that they are 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 of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
