In case you offer products and services on your site and you would like the payment information that customers send to be risk-free, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but to get an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of your web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
