Server Name Indication (SNI) SSL allows an SSL certificate to bind to a website using a shared IP address. Using SNI SSL will allow an encrypted and secure HTTPS connection to a website. One thing to bear in mind is while SNI provides a secure connection, it is not compatible with some older web browsers.
Unique IP SSL binds a SSL certificate to the account with a unique IP address. A unique IP address is $15 a month.
Browsers compatible with SNI:
- IE 7 and later
- Chrome 5.0.342.1 and later
- Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and later
- Opera 8.0 and later
- Safari 3.0 and later
