In general, you're out of luck. Pretty much every service uses IP
addressing only; thus, unless you have sufficient routable IP addresses
(ie, your ISP is providing you with a subnet) then you simply can't do

The major exception is HTTP (and the various things that layer on top of
it) which carries the target hostname as part of the protocol.
Unfortunately, HTTPS leaves you back at square one since it uses SSL
directly rather than via some form of STARTTLS negotiation that might be
able to send the desired hostname.
