I have just signed up to a reseller account with Vidahost.
They dont provide dedicated IP's as standard, so offer SNI if you need to install a SSL on one of your domains.
I need an SSL for a ecommerce shop which will be hosted on one of the domains. Should I opt for a dedicated IP, as ive read SNI is not supported under WinxP (I know some people still using this)!
Also, is there a difference in security if using a dedicated IP for this domain for the purposes of a webshop?
Just make sure that the default SSL site is not someone else's website when you are using SNI.
To do that, before you install SSL, point a web browser to https://your.domain and see what comes up. If the host has done the right thing, it should be a generic (default) SSL domain. If not, then avoid the host unless they will provide a dedicated IP for you.
