SNI technology Previous version of TLS, which we had used with all our servers, didn’t recognize HTTPS requests that contained domain name. It only worked correctly only if an IP address was “asked”. Thus it was a requirement to have a dedicated IP for each domain that used a secured connection.
Now, with the cPanel version 11.38 and higher, we are able to use SNI.
Server Name Indication (SNI) is an extension to the TLS protocol that indicates what hostname the client is attempting to connect. This allows a server to present multiple certificates on the same IP address and port number and hence allows multiple secure (HTTPS) websites (or any other service over TLS).
However, unfortunately there are a few issues that might appear:
SNI is incompatible with some old versions of the web browsers.
SNI does not work on :
Web site will still be available via HTTPS, but a certificate mismatch error will appear.
Ways to resolve the issue: Use different browser to access the web site.
If SNI works for you, we will install SSL without ordering a dedicated IP address.
However, if you require a dedicate IP for your cPanel account, please submit a ticket to our Billing department via our helpdesk.
