Question Linux config IP


I was looking into how ipcop handled port forwarding and found out that it was using iptables. What I would like to do it handle incoming url's as well as port forwarding e.g:

www . url1 . com --->
www . url2 . com --->
and at the same time: --->

Is this possible using iptables or is there another way?

The reason for this is that I'm currently using virtual hosting in my Apache web server, which works find. BUT for SSL to work correctly you need one external ip address (mapped to the common name found in both the domain and SSL certificate) and an internal ip address (Apache listing on).

So I was wondering if I could adapt the current firewall to test the incoming requests and then forward them on to the correct internal ip address, which is where Apache SSL will then handle it. I could simply buy more external ips but this is not an option for me.

If I'm on the wrong path with this one does any one know how to handle this? Is there a way to handle SSL request (or any url request for that matter) using one external ip address and many internal address for Apache to listen on?
