After the addition of the SSL certificate on your domain name, very next issue you may face is with broken http webpages. Due to some issues, your webpage may not come with https. So in this case what we have to do is to redirect all the http request to https.

Sometimes the issue is because of the cached webpage data. The http url gets automatically loaded when the user directly types the url.

Another case is some assets loaded in that page is having HTTP URLs. The second case can cause the webpage showing the brocken page or safety issue messages.

How to automatically redirect http to https

The http to https redirection is a very easy task that can be done by modifying the .htaccess file.

You can find the .htaccess file in the root folder of your website.


If you are not able to find it try – show all hidden files in – file manager Settings. Or else still you cannot find create a new file named: .htaccess

You can add the below piece of code in your .htaccess file to enable the redirection.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
  • After copy pasting the above code Save the .htaccess file.
  • Now try loading your url in the web browser.

Case 2:

If you are already having some contents in your htaccess file with,

RewriteEngine On
.....
....
...

Then you dont need to paste RewriteEngine On again, you can append the other two lines (given below) to the existing RewriteEngine.

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
