http:// to https:// or running both at the same time...

Does anyone have a bulletproof system where I can learn to consolidate my two websites asone secure website?

I got the SSL ticked, but now seem to have some dissonance between the two - what do we do to preserve previous backlinking efforts going to the old http:// as we move into https:// for our natural websites? Thanks Mike

Hi @Mike B

 

Best place to ask would be the webmaster forum.

 

However, I will have a stab at this.

 

I assume your host does not provide a solution for this - some hosts have a redirect configuration.

 

The next option would be to insert the redirect into your htaccess file - something like this:

 

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R,L]

 

Get  a developer to check and add to make sure its all correct, because you may already have other redirect rules in place.
