    Hello!

    I would like to add Thawte SSL123 to one of my domain.
    Do I need dedicated IP to this domain or can I use this domain on shared ip?

    thanks

    Zoltan

    SSL-enabled sites should use IP-based hosting, not name-based hosting. That means that each site that has an SSL certificate should have its own IP address. You can install an SSL certificate on a shared IP address, but you must install it for the nobody user, not the account user.

    It is best, if possible, to give the site that needs an SSL certificate its own dedicated IP address.
