    SSL - shared or ... ?

    Is it good to use only shared SSL?
    Have you used that for making your business safer?

    I wouldn't recommend them because of the "loss of identity" perception in the URL.

    With a proper SSL:

    https://yourdomain.com/shop/widget-123

    With a shared SSL:

    https://yourispserver/~yourdomain/shop/widget-123

    I wouldn't trust the latter.

    Besides, proper SSL certs which run on a dedicated IP address aren't expensive enough these days to be even thinking about a cheap alternative.
