Check with GoDaddy and see what they  offer.  I was under impression that it
is based on Domain not IP.  Also if one domain just points to a second address,
why not have the non ssl one, redirect to the SSL site and let the user
know what is happening?

She is preparing to obtain an SSL cert for one or both domains, but was told that because SSL's are based on IP addresses that she wouldn't be able to apply it to both domains. She was planning on obtaining 2 SSL certificates (one for each domain), but evidently that's not possible.
