What does SNI change?

"HTTPS support on custom domain names almost always requires a premium account."

Mention of "buckets" in a recent Cyanide & Happiness comic brought this to mind. Since you wrote this comparison, Internet Explorer on Windows XP reached end of support in April 2014. IE on XP was the last major web browser not to support Server Name Indication, and it's a lot easier to offer HTTPS at no extra charge. In addition, an automated gratis certificate authority called Let's Encrypt has since gone live, and a major search engine has slightly boosted ranking of documents on secure origins. So in the era of SNI, ACME, and SEO bonuses, are high-performance static file hosting services and CDNs still charging extra for HTTPS? --Tepples (talk) 16:16, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
