    This is my first ded server (ServerBeach) and I named it, so the next thing I did was set up DNS for and This is all a learning experience for me.

    Of course, the first hosting account I set up is Then I set up Now I'm trying to set up ssl for both of them, generating my own certs. seemed to be working fine but when I got the cert for set up, took me to :eek: How the heck did that happen??

    Okay, I understand there is something about certs can not share IP addresses, or something like that. But I also understand that I can have several different secure hosts on one machine, thus one IP. It's awful confusing. Can someone please clear me up on this, or point me in the right direction?

    You can have several SSL sites on one machine, but each one has to have it's own dedicated IP.

    Your server should have several ip addresses bound to it... you likely have between 4 and 8... depending on how many your provider started you out with. Though if you have a really basic server, you may only have one IP... in which case you'll need to order some more IPs.

    You can have as many SSL sites as you have IPs.
