2 SSL certificates on 1 Server 1 IP address Host Headers

I purchased an nsProtect Secure (Xpress)  from network solutions. The problem is there's already an ssl certificate on the server. The server is Windows 2008. It has 1 IP address. There are multiple sites on the box sharing the common address using host headers. Is there a way to register the 2nd certificate on the box without invalidating the first one. It's my understanding that using the same IP address and default port 443 is a no no.

Add one addition IP address. Bind the certificate to this IP address and port 443.

That's the  problem the ISP won't give me another IP address
Using appcmd command, it is possible to add host header for HTTPS website in IIS binding.
