1 virtualhost with 5 ips

Hi all,

Is it possible to host 1 virtualhost with 5 ips?
If yes, how?

Thank you very much
Maurizio

What do you want to do with the other 4 IPs?

I don’t know. Some of my collaborators and customers would like to have it :frowning:

But, for what? I’m just confused. I can’t offer any advice if I have no idea what you’re trying to achieve. The goal is usually to put more onto fewer IP addresses. I can’t think of any reason to go out of your way to use more–a single IP is all you need for dedicated FTP, SSL, etc. You do need a second IP for DNS (and a whole second server is even better), but no other services would have any reason to be on multiple IPs, on a single system.

Can you now put more than one ssl certificate on one IP with more than one domain name? Such as www.test1.com and www.test2.com and www.test3.com and so on, so that they all have their own ssl certificate on one hosted IP address.

I have more than one post. I messed up. Sorry.

This should be a new topic, as it has nothing to do with the question that started this thread.

No, but you can use a UCC certificate which contains many certificates. The docs cover all of this here:

Not exactly, but sort of :slight_smile:

The way it works is:

  1. You can only have one SSL certificate per IP address, but –

  2. You can obtain special SSL certificates called UCC and wildcard certificates that function for multiple domains.

You can see some UCC and wildcard SSL certs listed on GoDaddy’s site here:

I’m new in the world of ssl and I’m still learning and trying to learn some of the terms associated with this field. I also wanted to ask Maurizio’s question so I’m grateful he asked first. I’d also like to thank Andreycheck and Joe for their answers and the documentation.

Cheers!
