Bing Bot SSL SNI Support

When I migrated some website to use HTTPS, I noticed that not all browsers have SNI support and my website that migrated to SSL use shared IP address, so only browsers that support SNI can access the website.

The challenge is to make sure that my website is still exists in search result on the major search engines. Google Bot already support SNI, and how about Bing Bot? To make sure that Bing Bot support SNI, I read the log of my server and I got similar with this from the log file. "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0; +"

So, I got conclusion that Bing Bot 2.0 support SNI when crawl HTTPS website, and I checked in their search result that my HTTPS website with SNI is there.
