Features in Nirvati

HTTPS In Nirvati, the HTTPS feature is getting significant improvements. In addition to, we plan on making a shorter domain availabel for Nirvati (Probably and Citadel users. This makes the domains a lot shorter and hopefully easier to remember. I've also decided to implement another feature I didn't consider before starting Nirvati that I noticed during building this website (Which is currently running on a Citadel node): Multiple domains for HTTPS.
