Easy--because SSL isn't very friendly for virtual domains unless you
specify a separate IP address for *every* domain. (Remember--SSL works on
the *IP* level, not on the HTTP server level--so right now having the
other domains reply to https: means they're using my (Wingfoot's)
certificate, which causes all kinds of screaming by browsers, and just
Looks Ugly(tm).) For any of us who've ever been hosted at places like
phpwebhosting.com, you know exactly what I'm talking about.. :)

So, since IPs cost $, plus the time and hassle to have to go through a
network renumber... I'm all about avoiding that. :)

*nod* Ok...

Ok fair enough.. I'll give this a shot... I'll let you know how it turns

Thanks, Richard!
