A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login information which are exchanged between your website and its users. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
