A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
