-Can each store have a seperate dedicated IP address?

-Will each store need to have a separate SSL Certificate or will one protect all stores?

-How many different stores can the software support?

-Is there a way to have multiple stores without having a main store that each individual store points back to?

Your IP address would belong to your server, so in order to have multiple IP addresses, you would have to have multiple Magento installations which you could link all the stores to (you would have multiple admin panels as well).

In this case, yes they would need to have seperate certificates.

The software can support as many stores as your server space and bandwidth can handle.  Be aware that magento is a resource hog (kind of like Windows Vista).

But having a dedicated subdomain for each shop is possible with just one Magento installation right?

How can larger sites like CSN Stores and Net Shops have seperate dedicated IP addresses for each of there sites, and I think they have only one admin?
