    1. Which SSL is easy to install? Any recommendation?

    2. Does SSL use only for one domain? What is the price range like?

    3. If I buy 2 IP address for nameserver, can I use one of the
    for SSL? How?

    4. What if i only buy 1 IP address and use only for SSL purpose, how do I work it on?

    I bought a Geotrust cert from http://www.rackshack.net for $49 and haven't had any problems with it. There is the ability to share a cert accross a server (shared SSL), but that is well beyond my knowledge.

    Is the installation easy using CPANEL?

    I just got a cert from rackshack yesterday....the install with cpanel went fine. But now when I go to it, is just times out:

    https://secure.webxonline.com/

    But if you do it with normal http is works fine.

    Any ideas?

    I get a DNS error under the HTTPS link as well, are you sure the install went well? Did you check httpd.conf?

    check httpd.conf and see if there is something like below for the site:

    <IfDefine SSL>
    <VirtualHost 66.77.66.77:443>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@sitename.com
    DocumentRoot /home/USERNAME/public_html
    .....
    SSLEnable
    SSLCertificateFile /usr/share/ssl/certs/sitename.com.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/share/ssl/private/sitename.com.key
    SSLLogFile /var/log/sitename.com
    .....
    SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown
    </VirtualHost>
    </IfDefine>

    if not, delete SSL host in WHM, and reinstall.

    I heard rackshack certs have problems.. and their support is a nightmare.

    Geotrust is even worst,

    I like comodo (sslca) good support easy to use certs.

    ## httpd.conf -- Apache HTTP server configuration file
    ##

    #
    # Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
    #
    # This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/> for detailed information about
    # the directives.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
    #
    # After this file is processed, the server will look for and process
    # /usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf and then /usr/local/apache/conf/access.conf
    # unless you have overridden these with ResourceConfig and/or
    # AccessConfig directives here.
    #
    # The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
    # 1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
    # whole (the 'global environment').
    # 2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
    # which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
    # These directives also provide default values for the settings
    # of all virtual hosts.
