name-based means apache uses nothing but the hostname (in the Host:
header) to decide which virtualhost will handle the request.

In your example, Apache can tell which TCP port the request was
received on. Unlike the name-based scenario, this can be done before
the SSL handshake is started. It's the same as using different IP
addresses as far as Apache is concerned.
