HTTP to HTTPS Redirection

By default, HostCab Linux Servers have the mod_rewrite module enabled. You can make use of this module to automatically redirect your visitors from HTTP to HTTPS.

Setting the HTTPS Redirection
Ensure that the Digital Certificate is properly installed on your Hosting Order, and the site is resolving on https://yourdomainname.com.

Your site will work on https://yourdomainname.com or https://www.yourdomainname.com or https://subdomain.yourdomainname.com, depending on the Common Name for which you had the certificate issued. Resolving HTTPS on anything other than this Common Name would result in a certificate name mismatch error.

Create a .htaccess file under the site's directory and add the following lines to it. In case there already exists a .htaccess in your site's directory, carefully edit it to add these lines:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{REQUEST_URI}

needs to be replaced by the Common Name for which the Digital Certificate is issued.
