To quote a couple specifications:
"HostName" contains the fully qualified DNS hostname of the server,
as understood by the client. The hostname is represented as a byte
string using ASCII encoding without a trailing dot.
A client MUST send a Host header field in all HTTP/1.1 request
messages. If the target URI includes an authority component, then a
client MUST send a field-value for Host that is identical to that
authority component, excluding any userinfo subcomponent and its "@"
delimiter (Section 2.7.1).
That means that the SNI host name and HTTP Host header do not always match. The SNI host name must never have a trailing dot, but the HTTP Host header must reflect a host name that is identical to the host name of the URI, so if the URI's host has a trailing dot, the HTTP Host header must include that trailing dot.
For example, if the URI of a page is <https://sni.velox.ch./>, the following values should be sent by the Web browser:
SNI host: sni.velox.ch
HTTP host: sni.velox.ch.
However, Qt sends "sni.velox.ch." as the SNI host name, causing the server to throw an error.
