This is a completely new installation and only with two domains created to check whether SNI works by default.
SNI is compiled into the webserver, it does not require any additional configuration so it works by default.

Else, can someone share their experience setting up multiple ssl sites with a single public ip, using SNI feature of apache2 and nginx in ISPConfig Appreciate it! Thanks!
Works fine here on all servers. Just perfect server setup with no additional configuration.

1) http://<domain.tld> got "403 Forbidden" message showing in error.log:
You enabled the default ssl vhost which will cause the webserver to redirect requests to a directory that should not be accessed and the correct reply is a forbiden error. The default-ssl vhost should not be enabled if you want to use sni for websites in ispconfig, thats why the perfect setup does not instruct you to enable it.

If you wnat to use ssl in a website and get the website when you enter https in fron of the domain, then you have to enable ssl for that website in ispconfig and create a ssl cert for it in ispconfig.
