With the shortage of available address space in IPv4, IPs are becoming increasingly difficult to come by, and in some cases, increasingly expensive. However, in most instances, this is not a drawback. Servers are perfectly capable of hosting multiple websites on one IP address, as they have for years.

What is an SSL?
An SSL (or Secure Socket Layer) is the standard method for creating an encrypted link between a web browser and a web server. This secure link ensures that data passed between the browser and the web server are private.
Every single day 100s of terabytes of data are being transferred across the internet. In fact, based on Intel’s 2012 report
, nearly 640K GB of data is transferred every single minute. That’s more than 204 million emails, 47,000 app downloads, 1.3 million YouTube videos watched and 6 million Facebook views. We’re talking about a seriously massive amount of data here. So, how do we know if that data is being transferred securely? Enter the SSL/TLS protocols.
