Is a dedicated IP required for SSL?

I am trying to open a small e-commerce website.  I am using shared hosting using mochahost, which should be fine as I will probably have less than 1,000 hits a day (at first, at least).

Mochahost provides “free shared SSL” and discusses how to use that here:  http://www.mochasupport.com/kayako/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid;=326

I have enabled “Use Secure URL’s in frontend” and have input my base URL info on the system/config/web/secure tab.  My website works fine until i hit “checkout” and then it just times out after about a minute. 

My question is: Will magento work using the free shared SSL or do I have to have a static IP address and purchase a $9.99 certificate from some other website and install it?

-----------------------------------------

In this article:  http://www.magjournal.com/2009/05/adding-ssl-support-to-magento/, on step 3, it mentions that one must “symlink” directories.  I don’t have a “private_html” folder on my server, but I do have a “SSL” folder, and I also have a folder within my root folder where magento is installed called “_private”.  Are the certain files that need to be copied or symlinked to these folders in order for this all to work?

What did you enter as secure base URL? According to the Mochahost documentation, the secure URL should look like this:
https://servername.mochahost.com/~username/

Granted that Magento is working properly at this URL, it should work fine. Beware, though, that this will generate duplicate content for Google. Though more expensive, a dedicated SSL certificate for your store therefore is highly recommended and also greatly adds to the perceived trustworthiness of your store.
