For instance: a hosting provider Comodo provides certs for all his VPS and website hosting customers automagically. Does so by checking if the IP address requesting the cert is in their VPS/server pool (but does not check the domain requested). If so, issues the cert.
It makes it possible to get a Comodo cert free of charge, apparently. Can't find the talk about it right now, though.
