If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
