I was under the (obviously mistaken) impression that one certificate  
per hostname was the rule. and I created the certificate with the  
hostname I want to use; which is resolvable; and reachable with  
regular http over port 80. And that is the only SSL enabled site I  
want to use on this server.

  Getting multiple IP addresses on my server will require a change of  
plan of action for me; but may be possible.
