From time to time we are asked by our clients on how they can force their website visitors to view their website over https.

For example, if a visitor access http://yourdomain.com , you can force them to https://yourdomain.com so that they are always using the SSL certificate.

Here's how you can perform this operation inside your cPanel account:

Login to your cPanel account and click on Redirects under the Domain section.


Set Type to Permanent (301).

Next to https://(www.)? choose the domain name you are working with.

Next to Redirects to, enter your website's url using the Shared SSL Certificate

We recommend having Redirect with or without www. selected, so that the user will be forced to use SSL whether they use yourdomain.com or www.yourdomain.com

Ensure Wild Card Redirect is selected

Click on Add button to finalize changes. Here's how Step 2 until Step 7 can be summarized as seen below:



Once you're done, just click on the Go Back button to return to your dashboard.
