SNI ( Server Name Indicator ), SSL support in cPanel
Discussion on SNI, SSL, HTTPS, IP address, etc and
Poll : Do you want to see/have full/more support of SNI, SSL in CPanel ?
* Yes, More Options
Does cPanel supports SNI ( Server Name Indicator ) ( its a TLS extension, mod_gnutls ) ?
SNI allows a hosting server to use/share only 1 IP address to host hundreds of virtual hosts each with its own SSL certificates.
Usually SSL implementation (like, for delivering content through HTTPS Secured Web Pages) is done for each virtual host by binding it with one dedicated/unique IP address.
Improvement of this feature will help us to provide & implement SSL certificate for each virtual host, by using only 1 shared IP address, is a great way to reduce the need of extra IPs, thus saving the cost of dedicated IP, and by also improving the overall whole package.
How much SNI support does cPanel currently have ?
