AFAIK virtual hosting isnt possible with SSL.

Is correct. Think about it:
1) Open a socket.
2) Negotiate SSL over the socket.
3) Send first HTTP GET/POST over SSL.

During step two the server simply does not know what virtual domain might later be requested in step 3. So you must tie certificates to sockets; either IP's or ports.
