A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you want to get an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account information that are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL starting 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.
