The only way to provide this is using multiple ports.

(Different services on different ports work just fine with a single IP
and multiple certs;  I assume you really want multiple HTTPS hosts on
the standard HTTPS port on a single IP.)

The best explanation I've seen is in the Apache/mod_ssl documentation:

If you're willing to live with "strange" HTTPS ports (I would NOT
recommend this!!) you can set up Apache to listen on additional ports,
and accept HTTPS connections there with different certs for each port.

Get your mouse off of there!  You don't know where that email has been!
