Force HTTPS/SSL for website visitors  Print this Article

Once you've installed an SSL certificate for your website, it's likely that you'll want all of your website visitors to access your website through a secure HTTPS connection. 

You can force an HTTPS connection by inserting the following code into the .htaccess file of your website's root directory:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

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