comment Multiple SSL on same IP
The OP said port 443, thus it's web traffic. If it's not browsers, it's dedicated tools and the provider of the service gets to dictate API requirements, including SNI.

comment Multiple SSL on same IP
You use of the word "most" is dubious. IE 7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, the list goes on. Now, IE on WinXP does not support SNI but the competition does.

comment A website hosted on the 1.0.0.0/8 subnet, somewhere on the Internet?
Oh, and two of the 12 allocations to "country: AU" are 1.40.0.0/14 and 1.44.0.0/16 to Optus, confirming that Mark Henderson's iPhone is legitimately using the IP address he references.

comment PDO - WHat is it? How do I enable it on shared hosting
If phpinfo() reports mysql pdo support, then it's available for use and loaded -- if it's not configured to load, then phpinfo() won't see it. So what's the "problem"?

Find the line with unbalanced double-quotes; probably around line 31. Fix it, so that bind can load the zone. Gmail should then see the new data, not the last data which successfully loaded into your nameserver and verification should work.

You're missing a closing double-quote somewhere.

comment Limiting network throughput of an already launched process ? (Linux/FreeBSD)
Right, but if this isn't bandwidth shared with other local computers, then if the machine is idle you mostly don't care if this process gets all the bandwidth. It's only when there's another process which tries to use bandwidth that it matters. We may haver different definitions of "very heavily loaded" -- if there's another process trying to run, it gets priority and so if the load average is >= 1 per core, this may help. I did note that it's crude but if it's the only available tool (FreeBSD) then it's at least worth a shot.

comment Why is ntpd not updating the time on my server?
Setting the clock on a vhost is ill-advised, unless you're guaranteed to always be scheduled with at least one CPU, since otherwise the time perceived by the vhost does not match the time of the outside world. The dom0 should be maintaining time. The other question's answer is good. NTP is UDP, so you need to permit packets from the servers which you query for time. My ntpd is stale as I moved to OpenNTPD a few years ago.
