A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and login info that will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a certified SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
