Yes, they share the same IP address, if you go to
https://publish.indymedia.org.uk/ then everything is OK.

Yep, I think we need an extra IP address to se this up or
we could redirect all publish.indymedia.org.uk requests to
www0 and then generate a cert for www0...
The idea of encouraging SSL traffic for the publishing
server is to make it less clear to anyone sniffing the
traffic who is browsing the site, who is doing admin and
who is publishing...
This idea is written up here:
