Knowledgebase: SSL Certificates
My webserver hosts many sites on a single IP address, can I install a certificate for each domain name?

The SSL protocol encrypts the domain name when an SSL session is being established. If you are hosting many websites each with their own SSL certificate on the same webserver, each website must have a unique IP (dedicated IP) to ensure that the webserver knows which domain the SSL session should be for. You will need to purchase an extra dedicated IP address for each domain name that requires a SSL certificate.
