Thanks to TLS  SNI (server name indication), a dedicated IP address is
no longer necessarily,
RFC 3546, 3.1.

Yes, it is realistic to expect every mom-and-pop posting a personal
web site to utilize a provider that implements SNI,  and the sooner
they do it.

It's also realistic to expect them to buy one of those $15  SSL certificates.
Heck....   1 year .COM  registration used to cost a lot more than that.

We're not talking about huge recurring costs here.
