How to direct visitors to secure https SSL version automatically?


#1

Hi there. A bit of a noob on some aspects of domain names and SSL.

What is the best way to arrange it so that when someone types in our address, (either www.ourdomain.com or ourdomain.com) that they automatically get directed to the SSL secure https://www.ourdomain.com/ ?

Thanks very much in advance. Lovely product. Great community.


New Feature: SSL is here!

@Strik for security reasons it is recommended against a rewrite in htaccess. You should setup a redirect in your main server configuration file.

However, if you have an SSL certificate for that domain you should only be using the https. Your domain should always redirect. If you’re using Apache try this > https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4083221/how-to-redirect-all-http-requests-to-https/21798882#21798882 I have used it successfully in the past.
