    hi there,
    just wanting to know if anyone can help me with my problem. or direct me in the right direction.
    SNI is great but i don't want to use it for one cpanel account as some users will be using browsers which do not support it.
    so i have a main domain and 3 add on domains. and i have a multi domain SSL which has all 4 domains in the SAN fields. and a single dedicated IP for the account. I have tried installing the SSL and it is all good, but it uses SNI when i check. is it possible to do it without SNI.
    I did get it to work once with a wildcard certificate using instructions here:
    but i am not sure if that will work with a mutli domain SSL?
    any help would be grand.

    Hello :)

    You can assign a dedicated IP address to each addon domain name if you want to avoid using the SNI functionality. Documentation on how to do this is at:

    Assigning Dedicated IPs to Subdomains

    Thank you.
