    On most set-ups, yes you will need a static IP address to attach it to. You should use a static IP address as well for that.

    chain ssls will allow you to sneek out the back doar and around this issue, for sure either way you will need a SSL certificate, and an IP address is only gonna cost up to $5 /month (tops- I really hope at least)

    if your gonna sell to two people a month for starters I woudnt worry just yet to make the leap, wait until it pays for itself

    Yes, you require a dedicated IP address for an SSL cert. If you are buying the cert from your webhost and having them install it for you, they will most likely just give you the IP address. It is less hassle for them in the long run as well, plus it makes for a more happy customer. At least, that's the way we see it.

    Not too sure what this has to do with SSL at all but you need to check out their site to see what is compatible: http://www.ikobo.com/ipn_manual.pdf
