A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
