Can you serve multiple HTTPS sites from a single IP address?
Have a look here

I have nothing in my domain records or any re-directs from the http site pointing to the https site (I'm guessing that I should set something up?).How tempting it is to reply: NSS.
it seems that browsers go to http (port 80) and if https exists then there will be a re-direct to port-443.
After that, it seems that browsers will remember the next time you hit that domain to automatically go to port-443 (until or unless you clear the browser cache I guess). There seems to be some add-ons that alter behavior so port-443 is the default first-access.
maybe browsers should try https first instead of http when a user enters a url (without http or https) into a browser address barHave you ever tried requesting https://example.com for a site that you know to be http? If the server isn't listening on port 443, it will take a very, very long time before the browser comes back with a “couldn’t get through” message. Worse, if it is listening on port 443, but the individual site happens not to be https, the human user will get a message from their browser warning that the site isn't configured correctly. The identical message is displayed, regardless of whether the error is at the site's end--expired certificate--or the user's end--making an invalid request.
So we're going to build a list into all browsers of domains that are ok to hit first on httpsNo, we're going to continue requesting http by default. For the time being, that is the only viable option.
my site / domain is both http and httpsWhy? Are you trying to confuse the user--and the search engine that supplies you with users?
I'm curious as to when (or if) google will start giving https SER .... No redirection from the http site required.
