If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login information that users upload, you will 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 example 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 submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.

A private key linked to the CSR will also be generated and available in the very same section of your account.
