Regardless of the use of apache, the combination of multiple registered
domain names, HTTPS and a single public IP address is going to cause you
problems. The only solution to this is to use multpile non-standard
public-facing ports for the HTTPS connections which may or may not be
what you want.

If it is not what you want, you will have to solve the one public IP
address part of your current set-up. Perhaps go IPv6 if your ISP
supports it?

The HTTP part can be solved with apache using a combination of
name-based virtual hosting and reverse proxying.
