How to redirect site from http to https?
« on: 08-08-2017, 01:58:57 »
I have purchased SSL certificate for my site.

But I have more than 1 site purchased from go daddy. So whenever I add htaccess file to my site, the other sites, stop working.

What should I do?

I have talked many times to customer support but this problem never gets solved.

My site is working on both URLs http & https.

Suggest something.

Using the following code in your .htaccess file automatically redirects visitors to the HTTPS version of your site:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Hello AdityaM7,

I was facing the same issue with SSL for my DataEntryAdroits domain but this issue has been resolved.

One Note for you here buddy - .htaccess does not work in GoDaddy, you need to upload the web.config file.

But before that, please see the below points to check if your domain fulfills the criteria.

First, add SSL Verified seal on your website footer - See the image as attached

Second: remove all images that are being called on your website from any third party URL and also remove all (http)  - unsecured URLs from your domain

Third: apply this code to your web.config file

<configuration>
<system.webServer>
<rewrite>
    <rules>
   <rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
   <match url="(.*)" />
   <conditions>
      <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
   </conditions>
   <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="https://www.example.com/{R:1}" />
</rule>   
    </rules>
</rewrite>
</system.webServer>
</configuration>

You can simply place the main domain by replacing www.example.com or if your preferred search domains s example.com, then replace it with simply yourdomain.com.

After all, those, upload the web.config file to ftp in public_html folder.

That's it. You are all set to go :)

Good Luck
