comment running multiple name-based web applications on a single ip address with SSL
Yes, although I see that you've also offered this as your first option ;) To be honest, it looks like the either way there are going to have to be some compromises - either more IP addresses, issues with older browsers/OS's or a level of cost and security in the DMZ.

revised My google Page Rank is 1 but a very famous site has a PR of 4, is that rank correct?
Tidied up the grammar and question a little bit to make it slightly clearer without fixing the underlying confusion.

Very similar, if not identical to SEO regarding using multiple H1 tag?

comment Where to store users consent (EU cookie law)
I'd happily give +1 for the cookie option, but I can't give +1 for the IP option - as @Mark points out, consumer ISP will reuse IP's for different connections, so if I refuse, but my neighbour accepts, and later our IPs switch and you start storing cookies I'd not be happy. Equally, companies often have multiple users behind a single firewall all sharing an external IP address. This needs to be a per-user setting - at the machine level...

comment Google Analytics setting cookies on static content despite being on entirely separate domain
I'm seeing a "Grade A on Use cookie-free domains" - it's only listing the TypeKit files as as being served from a domain with cookies - try deleting all your cookies from the site and trying again, see if any more are set?

comment Why do we have to pay for a domain name?
Also, unless you go into random ports and make things even more suspicious, only have one "site" responding on one IP address - domain names (or more accurately) Host Headers allow administrators host multiple sites on a single address (much like having different companies operating out of a single office block to take your analogy further).

comment Can google crawl an URL (say some static HTML file) that has no pointing link?
+1 for adding the note about authentication/authorisation. The only real way to guarantee search engines won't be able to reach these pages is to have them in a secure area in such a way that even requesting the path directly triggers the authentication.
