Every SSL Certificate needs a seperate IP adress?

    Question:

    Is it true that every IP address can only have one SSL certificate .. and that you'll need an extra IP-address for every (new) certificate that you install ?

    Someone please explain this for me.

    In short, Yup.

    However there are wildcard certificates. Have a google for that term and perhaps you can accomplish what you need that way.

    He he .. yeah . i know .. but Wildcard means $$$$

    But now i know for sure that every certificate needs its own IP adress.

    So i think it might be a problem if i have 20 customers on 1 server who want a certificate .. I'm not sure if i can get 20 IP-adresses for my server !

    But luckily that situation has not arised yet.

    Unfortunately HTTPS designed in this way: one IP - one certificate.
