I've got an self-hosted IPB-license and just purchased a "40 - Community in the Cloud" package. Setup was really simple, and I had it setup with my own domain in no-time. However I found out that you can't install your own certificate unless you have the 100 users package (to get a dedicated IP) and then you have to purchase IPBs "SSL package".
I really think that you should allow users to install their own certificates and install certificates even on the lower plans. Since the servers run cPanel I could only assume thats it's as simple as allowing users to access the "SSL-manager" so we could install our own certificates. The servers already run later versions than 11.38 (where SNI support was added) so users don't need a dedicated IP anymore.
I would love to see SSL-support for the smaller cloud packages!
Thanks for the feedback! The "advanced" packages that allow SSL are actually on an entirely different system than the lower cloud plans and are not setup for SSL - some of our infrastructure uses cPanel, some does not - we use a relatively customized environment even on the cPanel servers. We are, however, introducing new plans and offerings later this year and you may find SSL to be more flexible at that time.
This is currently a blocker for me on at least one of my sites, if not two. I have already moved one to IPS hosting but cannot move the others.
I would be most interested in SSL capability on the lower plans.
SPDY support for SSL-enabled clients would be awesome too. :P
Now with IPS4 (and I think the plans are updated) is SSL supported for all plans?
I couldn't find any info about it on your site and searching for SSL returned no results, even thought this topic even contains SSL in the title.
I have (unrealistic) dreams of SSL on one of the small plans. I tried Stripe for a while and found the user (and admin) experience miles ahead of lobbing users off to PayPal, but I could not in good conscience use Stripe without SSL (and indeed savvy users noticed and rightly balked).
But our club is very small and our transactions far too few to support even the base cost of a large plan, never mind the additional costs of SSL on top of that. Maybe somebody someday will commoditize this somehow in the manner of shared hosting. In the meantime, for others who can pay the freight, I hope you get SSL as an option on any plan.
