    Hi,

    Is it possible to install SSL for one account (on vps will be only this one account) on vps server without own IP (only vps has own IP). Or I need two IPs - one for VPS and the second for ssl-domain on account ?

    While it is possible to install an SSL onto a domain on the shared IP, you'll have to install it as the user nobody rather than their username and then every site on the shared IP that tries to hit https://anotherdomain.com (so any other domain name on that shared IP) will show the domain that has the SSL installed onto it rather than their domain.

    As such, I do not suggest going this route. It would be better to get the domain a dedicated IP and use that for the SSL installation.
