Installing an SSL certificate on a domain without dedicated IP

    I have registered at startssl for a free SSL certificate and would like to use it for my e-mail and domain registration on a domain.

    It seems however that installing an SSL certificate without a dedicated IP requires SNI (Server Name Indication).

    Have people successfully installed an SSL certificate on a Plesk server before without a dedicated IP, but using SNI?

    You have to do SSL authentication/handshake before it hits a domain, so the Cert is typically bound to an IP which means one cert per one IP. You can use that main domain cert for the main cert on the IP that is the shared IP on your server and that will work fine. otherwise you would need an IP for each virtual host that needs a cert - unless you have a wildcard cert and all the domains are sub domains of that sld.

    Apache + SNI worked fine with Plesk 10.2. No dedicated IP required.

    Unfortunately Plesk 10.2 caused other problems, buggy buggy.
