    Ive been reading around, and think i have a hold of this, but Id like to be clear and help future searchers in the process.

    I have a plesk 7.5 box with 1 shared IP for the box. I have 1 domain that wants a SSL cert for ecommerce.

    I will need to get another IP address for the box in order to issue the certificate to the site itself, correct?

    There is no way to assign a SSL from a third party (like thawte or rapidssl) to this single domain without assigning the domain to it's own IP, correct?

    Thanks for your help!

    That is the correct way, to have a dedicated IP for a domain which needs an SSL cert. There have been others who have developed different hacks, but I would not recommend them. Hosting admins should (IMO) not take shortcuts or hacks when it comes to security related items...
