Extended Validation SSL certificates (EV SSL), the ones where the company name is in green in the browser bar, can only be purchased for 1 domain.
There are no mutli-domain or wildcard options available.
Therefore a server should be able to add-on a 2nd domain for order taking that can have a separate SSL certificate than the main site.
That's for conversion and user protection when they take orders.
Everybody can get an SSL, but an EV SSL protects end users since the validation process is more involved.
It's pretty odd that a decent server company can not provide a 2nd IP address for a server with good reason!
That's an industry standard with every server provider that is worth using.Veit supported this idea ·
