It works, but you have to add the SSL certificate and respective
key. Note that the root domain must be also in the certificate
otherwise the client will complain about the certificate, not being
able to establish endpoint authentication.

Here's an example. It rewrites from www to the base domain. So just
switch the server names and it will work. Add also a listen directive
for port 80.
