Dedicated IP address and SSL/TLS
With SNI now widely supported the technical requirement for a dedicated IP address to use SSL/TLS is no longer there and so Freethought no longer provides an IP address free of charge and expects customers to use a shared IP.
Dedicated vs Shared IP
When purchasing hosting from Freethought, customers will no longer be presented with the option to purchase a dedicated IP address. Once provisioned shared hosting will be allocated to a shared IPv4 address and either a shared or a dedicated IPv6 address.
