Hi .. I'm looking to buy an SSL cert so that I can use SSL without a browser warning. I read here that most of the time it's not necessary to have a static IP to host your own SSL cert: http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/websites.html#websites-secure-sites

However, all the options here say that I need one: http://www.namecheap.com/ssl-certificates/comodo/comodo-ev-ssl-certificate.aspx

Is this because this is a cheaper service, or will it work to use SNI with these certs even though it says you need a static IP?

Thanks

It will work with SNI. We can install any Apache/OpenSSL certificate via SNI.

Of course, there are some browsers that don't support SNI, so this is the main reason that most sources still suggest that a dedicated IP is required. But SNI works well for the majority of our clients and is what we would recommend unless you explicitly need legacy support.
