    Question Do I need static IPs for SSL certificates?

    I'm running a small hosting company on a Windows 2000 Server, IIS 5, and I'm having some problems with my server host company and getting additional IPs. In the meantime while I work this out, I have 3 separate sites that must have SSL certificates, and only 2 IPs!

    I've gone one IP dedicated to one site, but I need to run the other 2. Can I run all three on that IP with different SSL certificates, or MUST I have a static IP for each cert?

    Help!

    SSL certificates require their own IP.

    You could use them all on the same IP address by using three different TCP ports.

    https://www.mydomain.com
    https://www.mydomain.com:444
    https://www.mydomain.com:445

    Not that you would want to use those ports, since they might be reserved.
