If you offer services and products on your site and you would like the payment details that users send to be secure, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR features your website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
