The difference between SNI SSL and Unique IP SSL

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
