WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I found this thread where remi mentioned that SNI was on the todo list for WebFaction. It's been over a year since that post and I'm wondering if there has been any progress. Browser support has come a long way and for some time it has been available in Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, Chrome, and more recently the browsers in iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7. With support like that it seems like SNI is more than ready to be a viable option for a modern website. I think that this would be a welcome addition for a large number of WebFaction users as it adds a solid alternative for https in situations where dedicated ips are unnecessary.

I would love to see it implemented, as well.

The problem, as far as I can tell, is that it breaks clients that don't support it.

Would it be possible to have the option of either SNI or dedicated IP on the same server? So when enabling SSL it lets you choose.

We now support SNI on all servers, so if you want to run a HTTPS site using your certificate without a dedicated IP, you can do so. To do so:

  • Create your HTTPS site in the control panel.
  • Open a support ticket to have us install your certificate.
