A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains information about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address as well as email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify 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 of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site rather than http:// and the website visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
