Most commonly, you will need a separate static IP for each domain you want to 
put an SSL on.  So, if you have 20 domains with no SSL and one domain with 
it, then you'll need 2 static IPs.  One can handle all of the domains with no 
SSL of their own; the other can handle the one domain with its SSL.
