I know I need a second dedicated IP address to install an SSL certificate on my primary domain. This is probably a stupid question, but do I need to assign that new IP to the primary domain first, before activating the certificate?
If I'm not mistaken dedicated IPs are not a requirement for SSL anymore. I'm sure someone will chime in if I'm wrong but I believe that this was changed within the last year or so due to the fact that IPV4 addresses are becoming difficult to come by.
With IP's running out, this sounds like a very useful alternative. I'm searching on-line now for any potential disadvantages. I've already purchased a second IP from Knownhost, not sure if I will still use it or not.
