comment nginx + varnish, optimize caching urls for ssl and not
ESI will be handled by Varnish. So there are no lacks. Everything else (e.g. cache key for Varnish's objects) has to be defined in Varnish and there you can take care to have only one cache for one domain name.

comment Make nginx to pass hostname of the upstream when reverseproxying
@ncenerar You can do that but this will bring you to a single point of failure: the load balancer. If this is for load balancing (not redundancy) you can also use DNS based load balancing in combination with DNS failover.

comment Cannot connect to HTTPS port on Ubuntu
Actually it must be something else as I have successfully tested above example. Could you please check your log files. Maybe the responsible issue will be mentioned there.

comment Cannot connect to HTTPS port on Ubuntu
@xofer: Interesting, but it seems that the keyword "ssl" was missing for port 443 directives. So maybe the port was working fine but with HTTP and not (as expected by browsers) with HTTPS.
