the best you can try is to set multiple common names or wildcards. As
long as you're bound to use the 443 (for https) or 25 (for smtp-tls),
there's no way which virtual host the clients seeks to find before the
handshake is complete. Thus https://your.ip/ always finds the one
certificate you have there, if that's only one unique common name, then
you need another IP for the next certificate to be available as
