[CentralOH] WSGI Friendly Hosting

No matter where you are, you need 1 static IP address per SSL certificate,
your certicicate can cover either one fully qualified domain (x.you.com, or
you.com) OR a much more costly wildcard SSL *.you.com

$4/mo is about the standard, Rackspace will do it for $3/mo last I checked,
but you're going to be managing everything about your server there (it's a
VPS, not managed hosting) and it starts @ $9/mo.

Sometime in the future the tech will be available for this not to be such a
pain, but that's just the way it is right now.
