Though SSL doesn't itself provide a Host: header, the HTTP session on top if
it still does, so if you can get past the SSL layer virtual hosting will
work as usual.  As others have suggested, wildcard certs and
"subjectAltName" certs are two ways to make the SSL layer accept multiple
certs.  I have successfully used wildcard certs and name-based virtual
hosting together.
