OK. So, I started off writing this post explaining why SSL is important and how Google considers HTTPS as a ranking signal, but then I realized no one really needs a pitch on why secure website access is important. So, let’s get right to the meat of the matter. (more…)
Days are gone when we needed a dedicated IP for each website with SSL!
With Server Name Indication(SNI) extension of the Transport Layer Security protocol, it is now possible to use authentic SSL certificates for sites hosted on shared IP addresses. If you are on a Linux hosted environment, you could very well reap the benefit of the feature right away.
1. Reduces the cost of adding dedicated IP addresses
2. All domains can have their own SSL certificates installed
