A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required in case you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login details which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a registered SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
