I am confused about SSL, and after reading the Dreamhost wiki on the subject, my confusion is even greater. Here is my situation:
I have an app on Facebook that is being hosted on one of my Dreamhost domains. As you may know, Facebook (as of Oct. 1) now requires that all apps be backed by (or be attached to – I don’t know the terminology) a SSL certificate. Questions:
What exactly do I need to get from Dreamhost to satisfy Facebook with regard to SSL? (I have these terms swimming in my head, but I don’t know their relationship to one another, or which ones I need and don’t need: “secure hosting,” “static IP,” “signed SSL,” “self-signed SSL.”)
Can I order what I need through my Dreamhost C-panel?
How much will this all cost me?
I assume that any SSL certificate I purchase will be good only for a single domain. If this is so, will that certificate cover any number of apps that I may host on that particular domain?
Thanks. I am really confused on this subject, and will appreciate your help.
