Hi,

I have a number of domains hosting Joomla pages.
I'm looking for a way to provide them secure logon to administer site changes, without burning an IP address/SSL Cert for each site. I'm basically picturing something like this:

https://secure.hosting.com/domain.com

Where "domain.com" redirects internally to that user's page. I'm considering what mod_rewrite could do but I'm not sure if it can across cross domains (without presenting the user any SSL error either).

It won't be for "general" website use, and it's not like we're operating ecommerce and expecting people to shop online at an unrelated URL to the site. I'm also not familiar with Joomla enough to know whether it's going to realise it's not being seen at the usual URL and stop working in some way.

Any advice appreciated.

Hello :)

Could you let us know your OS and which version of cPanel is installed? You can now host multiple SSL Certificates, for different domains, on the same IP address with SNI Support (requires CentOS/RHEL 6) on cPanel version 11.38. This is documented at:

11.38 Release Notes -- SSL Improvements

Beyond that, on earlier versions of cPanel you could install a certificate on the hostname and share it. This will allow users to access their website over a URL such as:

hxxps://host.example.com/~username/
Thank you.
