The desired scenario is as the title suggests: Multiple Node.js servers/apps/websites, on separate domains, each with own SSL certificate, on a single server with a single IP address. So far I have tried:
A proxy catching all incoming requests and forwarding them to respective apps/servers, on separate, non-443 ports: Does not work, since the proxy server can only run on a single SSL certificate, which will throw an error for all but one of the domains.
Apps running on different ports and DNS pointing at these ports: Does not work, since an HTTPS connection, will always go to port 443. The SRV DNS record can't change this, for ports 443 and 80.
Using a single SSL cert issued for an IP address: Is somehow possible, but after doing some research on this, it is not such a good idea.
Servers responding to specific hostnames:
Error: listen EADDRNOTAVAIL 123.456.789.000:443. This is where I expected the server to ignore all requests but those where hostname is the domain.name. But still, you can't run multiple servers on a single port.
So back to square one: what I need is a proxy, which establishes a connection with an SSL certificate for the specific requested hostname, and forwards the request to an app/server running on a unique port. How? EDIT: Using Nginx, or other proxy/firewall software is certainly an option, but at this point, I am trying to find out a Node.js-only solution.
