SSL/Dedicated IP Question

Discussion in 'Site & Server Administration' started by Gomar, Sep 6, 2008.

    What is SSL/Dedicated IP. As far as I know is that they give you a unique IP instead of a shared one right? Am I correct?

    And is it really important?

    Also what about MS SQL Database. Some hosting don't got that, but it's cheaper.

    I don't know if I should go to get one with my hosting.

    Thanks.

    Dedicated ip means your are the only one to use it. As for the ssl, it refer to a security certificate bought for a specific domain, and to validate that certificate, the domain must be on a dedicated ip.

    MS SQL refer to microsoft sql database. Most linus have mysql database which is free, while microsoft software do cost money.

    Most of the times, with a good vendor, you don't need a dedicated IP, unless you want to install SSL.
    About MSSQL, asking your coder if they need it. Remember it's expensive, and the host can charge much for it

    Not strictly true. The SSL negotiations occur before any HTTP Host: headers are sent, so it is impossible for Apache to know what the request VirtualHost is for, therefore SSL requires a dedicated IP. Contradictory to this, mog_gnutls supports multiple SSL certificates per IP with different domains, but isn't supported by all browsers - from what I remember of it.
